Bourke to Cunnamulla

Day 21 - Friday 31 May 2013

We were packed up and on our way at 9:30 am with the first port of call being the dump point back at the Bourke Tourist Information Centre. We were on our way again at 9:45 am for our 255 kms trip to Cunnamulla. The traffic was very light with only a handful of trucks and road-trains going the other way, and not many more cars. We were overtaken by one motorhome and a few cars. The trip seemed to be very slightly uphill with a slight headwind and it was very difficult to get the Navara into overdrive and we spent most of the trip in 4th and 3rd gear. As a result our fuel consumption suffered a bit returning 24.5 litres per 100 kms.

We stopped for a coffee at the rest area on the NSW/Qld border just past Barringun and eventually arrived at the Cunnamulla Caravan Park at about 1:30 pm. After selecting a drive through site so that we could stay hitched up for the night, we walked into town to explore. We found the newsagent for papers then walked around town for a few photos before stopping at Boulders Café for a coffee and a toasted sandwich - Probably the best coffee we have had this trip. On the way back to the caravan park we walked out to the sand-hills behind the park.
