Half way down the Birdsville Track we stopped at a roadhouse Mungerannie Roadhouse and met up with the owner Phil Gregurke where we indulged in a fabulous cup of coffee and gluten free muffins!

Phil has his place on the market so if you are interested in a 'sea change' so to speak, contact Phil on 08 8675 8317

While at Birdsville we met the local Ranger, Don who was born in Hawker and lives with his wife Lyn. who was born in Birdsville.

Don learnt the traditional desert life from his grandmother Alice Lane and is now Ranger-in-Charge of Simpson Desert National Park which encompasses part of Wangkangurru traditional territories.

Don was in need of a helping hand as the Parks & Wildlife Office was to be painted and he had to take down all the artwork.  This turned out to be a very strenuous job but was accomplished in time.

We ended up having a great day.

It’s a very small world in a very large country!!

Having left the Birdsville Track last night, we headed south today to Wilpena Pound but stopped off at Blinman. A Toyota hilux turned in next to us and we couldn’t believe our eyes, the same family we met on the east coast up Cooktown way 10 months ago sporting their “The Whole Way Round” on the side of their Toyota Hilux.
The children Taye and Airlie are fabulous and we gave them a copy of our The Aussie Outback Songbook so they could listen to the songs while driving all over Oz.
Have fun kids !!

Jose Paronella built a castle in the early 1900s, a palace for his princess !  In 1935 it was opened to the public and has had a chequered history ever since.  In 1993 Mark and Judy Evans purchased the park and have been working hard restoring everything to its magnificence today having won numerous tourism awards.

It is a must see, so put it on your bucket list and go and visit, have a chat to Mark who will fill you in on its history and Junko and the others on the team are happy to give you a wonderful experience.

The Lion Den is a must see when travelling through Cape Tribulation to Cooktown.  This iconic hotel established in 1875 has real character and a wonderful stop for a cool drink and great food.

They have camping as well and their own little beach and swimming hole very much needed when you are in the tropics.

They now sell our full range of The Aussie Outback Children's Series so pop in and say hi to the crew at the Lions Den for a great experience.

This month sees us back on the road, first heading north, dodging cyclone Nora !

We called into The Daintree Discovery Centre today, and took time out to do the tree top walk with audio guides which was brilliant and so informative.  The canopy is so beautiful and the aerial walkway along with the canopy tower gives you so many different perspectives of the rainforest.

They have a great Jurassic Forest area with life like characters for the children.

A must stop over when you are doing the Cape Tribulation run, also great coffee and cake at the end of your visit
