    Our BB is permanently stowed in the vehicle and I wouldn't go without it. Many a time we stopped at a supermarket and bought burger patties or bangers, bread rolls etc. and just pulled up somewhere nice and cooked ourselves lunch.

    Much better than Maccas or Kenchucky, that's for sure.
    Cheers,

    Thanks for posting, brings back alot of memories of my identical trip.
    Why do you now need a key to get to the bourke fort? You just drove straight in before.

    They told at the info office that it's through private property and that a key is req'd for access

    Thanks for sharing! Great report for some great parts of western NSW!
    On days like this I'd rather be west of the Darling!

    Mate, what an epic adventure and an awesome write up. I wasn't aware that there is so much to do and see along the route you choose. I have learnt something (alot actually). You sure covered some ground too.
    The only thing better than fishing... is catching a fish...

    Thanks for the report Rob.

    It sounds like you had your share of adventure with the broken strut and trailer and not to mention the incident at mutawinji. You will remember that night for a very long time for all the wrong reasons!

    This report brings back a few memories for me and I have added a few more places to my list for future trips.

    Cheers Andrew
    Why would I buy something for $10 when I can make it for $20
