Tassie Say Goodbye…

Yesterday we drove over a whopping 1000 kms on our way down from Coober Pedy to Camp Coroung, south of Adelaide. Spirits were high, even though most of the time we were asleep as our late nights and early mornings were catching up on us. So we eventually arrived at Camp Coroung around five in…

Some of our highlights were: bus aerobics, having our first bush pee stop, seeing camels, a two hour game of Chinese Whispers, bursting two tyres, watching our driver and various others remove the metal things from the tyre, and arriving…

Queensland – Arrived on Friday

With the earliest morning so far we left Coober Pedy at 6:30am (5am wake up call) as we headed off to Uluru!
