a long way from here to there

my first visit to Queensland...


We went exploring during the school holidays. We packed our tent, our swags and headed north. Tibooburra was our destination as this is essentially in our backyard and we have never been! Three and a half hours, some dirt road, a stop at Milparinka and many property names I recognised from my School of the Air days and we were there.

Wow! Tibooburra and its surroundings embody the essence of 'The Outback'. It's vast, it feels like a long way to anywhere, the colours and the spaces are BIG and it's a little bit quirky!

Once again I am reminded that, while we travel a long way to enjoy some city pursuits, our spot has something special too. 

Have you had any adventures lately? What do you like about where you live?

  1. I'd love to check out that part of this country ... sometimes the best things are right under our noses.

  2. Kate...so beautifully captured. Cold beer and camp sites, that'll do it! I am sure that lovely young lady in the white shorts is very popular with the locals. From the chips behind the bar to old mate with the rum can, it doesn't get much more authentic x
