2018 Kakadu Road Trip - Windorah to Birdsville

We soon turned off to Birsdville and the start of gravel roads. The road was corrugated but we could still maintain a decent speed. Colin adjusted tyre pressures in the van and car to make the ride more comfortable.

We drove into town to check out the information centre and found out information about Big Red and other Birdsville attractions. Amazingly Birdsville has a huge water supply from an underground artesian supply. There taps everywhere in town and out on the common so we filled up our tanks and headed out to the common to find a camp spot.
