We left Thargomindah at 08:45 on our way to Carrawinya National Park. We arrived at the ranger base at 13:15 after a morning tea stop and several photos taken at the QLD/NSW border which also doubles as the "Dog Fence". The road surface was quite rough with hard based clay, corrugations and stony sections. Total of 221 kilometres.
Sunday 9th October:We then drove south thirty three kilometres and camped at the Ourimperee waterhole. The "Pump Hole" site was more majestic with it's beautiful river red gums while Ourimperee had only scraggy gums lining the waterhole. We also expected there to be more bird life but then we were spoilt after camping at Noccundra waterhole.
Monday 10th October:
We were now on our way to Bourke. After twenty three kilometres we arrived at the Hungerford Pub just several hundred metres north of the border and "Dingo Fence" We topped up our fuel and took some photos before crossing into NSW.
