It's certainly another world out here in South Western QLD. The Barcoo Shire is approximately the size of Tasmania and only has 3 towns, Stonehenge, Jundah and Windorah. These 3 towns have a general store, a pub, a school (where only 6 or 7 children attend) an information centre, come library and a police station. The entire Shire's population is 452. The area has a mosaic of channels that flow on to Lake Eyre during wet season. It is extremely difficult for us to imagine it flooding while we view the parched land. This country is of extremes. The people are up beat and friendly, ever so willing to help the tourist. They are excited to see new people and love you to stay and use their facilities.... read more

June 28, Sunday. Left Birdsville around 9:00 this morning, following three 4-wheel drive vehicles, all towing caravans. As it turned out the first part of the trip across Sturts Stony Desert to Batoota was fairly easy with only a couple of rough spots to negotiate and we made fairly good time. The next part of the trip got a lot harder but following the others gave me more confidence to attack the harder parts. In the back of my mind I knew if I got stuck they would tow me out. Of course it eventually happened, one wet spot was taken a little too fast and drowned the engine. Had to get towed out a least twice more before we saw the Windorah sign. The road into town was sealed but I felt a bad-shaking sensation ... read more
