Barcaldine to Emerald

Friday 9 June 2017

Another fine and sunny day.

Today's trip from Barcaldine to Emerald was 324 km. We were on the road by 10:00 am with a stop for papers at Barcaldine, a stop for fuel at Alpha, and a stop for lunch just before the Drummond Range. Initially our trip was on straight flat roads, however after Alpha the terrain changed as we went over the Dividing Range then the Drummond Range at 535 metres.

We arrived at the Emerald Cabin and Caravan Park at about 2:30 and checked in for one night. We were given a drive through site that allowed us to stay hitched up for the night. After a basic set-up we went for a walk into the Emerald CBD, which was about 1 km from the park. Emerald has a population of about 15,000 people with all the expected facilities.

The Navara had a little bit of hill climbing on this leg.

Not really Chappie, as this is a reasonably easy way to cross the Great dividing range.
