Bourke to Lachlan River

Day 80 - Monday 15 September 2014

Forecast for Bourke today was fine and clear and 31 degrees.

We were on the road at about 9:30 am for our 380 km trip to Lachlan River which is a rest area about 35 km north of Hillston. We stopped at Cobar at about 11:30 am for fuel, papers and a morning coffee. As we headed south the clear skies of Bourke gradually gave way to more and more cloud. Our next stop was at the Gilgunnia Rest Area at about 1:30 pm and we arrived at Lachlan River at about 3:00 pm. The rest area is a very large area next to the Lachlan River and we joined about 10 other caravans free-camped for the night.
