2017 Gulf Road Trip - Day 1-3

We were excited to be back on the road for our annual road trip. As soon as school was out we were on the road heading out to Chinchilla Weir for a quick stop over. We arrived in the dark and left in the dark.

Ready to roll. 

Day 2 was a 780k trip from Chinchilla to Barcaldine. The new van was going great and kids soon settled into their usual pattern of watching movies. We stayed at a free stay on the out skirts of town which was right next to the cemetery - the kids went exploring.

Day 3 saw us travel from Barcaldine to Julia Creek. We had to get a photos at Qantas with the new van. We filled up water at Longreach Showgrounds and saw a family of Emus (5 chicks). From Longreach it was out through Winton. It was getting hotter and dryer as we went.

The camp spot in Julia Creek was awesome. Another free stay on a small creek just out of town. The kids tried fishing and pulled a load full of fish - great fun.
