Nearly Home, our last night at Billy’s Farm in Lowden, Donnybrook

Our 1/2 lap of Oz is just about over, we’ve arrived at Dave & Jo’s place at Donnybrook and tomorrow we will be home. Driven around 10,500 klms at an average of 23LPH, the dearest diesel we encountered was $2.65 per litre at Willare WA. The weather ranged from HOT to FREEZING COLD & head wind and dust like you wouldn’t believe. But overall it was a fun trip and a good shake down for the new van. Though it didn’t travel on the rough corrugated roads our previous van had done, some of the blacktop roads would rate as being almost as bad. We’re pleased that very little requires attention and overall it’s proven to be very comfortable and we’re enjoying the luxury having the lithium batteries & inverter system.

The route, not taking into account plenty of side trips. With a couple of hundred kilometres to go before we get home. Roughly 10500 klms at a cost of $5833 and an average of 23 LPH

Alice Springs - Lest We Forget - Look Out

The day before leaving Alice it rained all night and most of the next day, so not much was done except reading and watching some TV, later in the afternoon we went to the ‘Lest We Forget War Memorial Look Out’ to take some photos. The back ground of the McDonald ranges certainly are beautiful. The Billy’s had left to go to Ayres Rock & Kings Canyon and we were slowly going to make our way down to Coober Pedy. We will meet up again in a weeks time.

Views from the Look Out, it really is a very pretty view

Kununurra- 16/08/22

Catch up time on the last few days. Catching up with John, my Brother from another Mother was great, we only had the night but from what I remember it was fun. 🤪 

We are currently at Tumbling Waters van park and using it as a base to visit Litchfield National Park & Darwin. The 1st day we spent relaxing and using the parks swimming pools, the 2nd day we drove into Litchfield and visited a few ‘must see places’ the 3rd was a drive into Darwin and today another visit to Litchfield. We have walked the trails and swam or soaked in all the beautiful waters. I’ll chuck up some photos and try and remember where I took them.
