Well this will be our last post on this blog, unfortunately our Road Trip is coming to an end and its time to go back home to the beautiful Blue Mountains NSW. We didn’t quite make it to Nambucca Heads tonight as we ran out of time due to getting slightly lost in Brisbane…..OK a lot lost in Brisbane……..so we decided to stay at Sawtell, which has lots of childhood memories for Rod.
We have clocked up approximately 13,000 kms and travelled through New South Wales, South Australia, Victoria, Western Australia, Northern Territory and Queensland the past 5 weeks. Over the course of the trip we only had two days of rain (Noosa and the Barossa),one day of ice (The Flinders Ranges), top temperature was around 32 degrees (Kununurra) and lowest temp -5 (Wilpena Pound – Flinders Ranges). Most days it was around 23 – 25 degrees.
We have had the most unbelievably good time on this trip and I would encourage anyone, if you have the chance – go do it! The landscapes are diverse, vast and amazing. The people we met were welcoming and friendly and always ready for a chat. The places we stayed were all fantastic.
Australia is a beautiful country and we are so lucky to live here. Both Rod and I appreciated Australia before we started our trip, but now we have a new appreciation that leaves us wanting to see more. If we could, we would have no hesitation in repacking and heading off again straight away, there is so much more to see and experience. We especially enjoyed sharing this experience with old friends and we hope you have enjoyed coming along with us through the blog which will serve as a good reminder to Rod and I of all the wonderful places we visited, the people we met and the fantastic experiences we had on our outback adventure.
