2017 Gulf Road Trip - Normanton Via Burketown

The plan after leaving Lawn Hill was to free stay somewhere between Burketown and Normanton. It was a sweltering day so we just kept driving.

More dust and dirt roads

Dry River bed - I think you can camp here

Colin and Madi - killing time on the road

We found this road sign to be rather amusing - only just a little more than Amanda's photography skills. 

We stopped at Burketown for lunch near the hot spring. 

Hot water bore - everyone was surprised that the water was actualy hot.

The stretch of road between Burketown and Normanton was mostly dirt. We had to over take a road train on the left hand side. The truckie made it easy for us thanlfully.

We kept driving to Normanton where we checked out the free camp on the river - it looked quite abondoned with only a few campers. We opted for the caravan park - however had to check ourselves in as they dont serve customers after 5pm or 9am.
