A Lazy Day in Thargomindah

Day 23 - Sunday 2 June 2013

A bit cooler in Thargomindah today - forecast 10 to 20 degrees. We had a lazy start to the day with eggs and bacon cooked on the Baby Q. In the morning we did the river walk and after lunch we did the heritage walk - about 5 kms all up. The Bulloo River is a closed drainage system between the Lake Eyre and the Murray Darling basins. The Bulloo river is usually dry except for a series of waterholes, but in years of strong monsoonal activity runs for approximately 600 kms before terminating in a series of ephemeral lakes.
