Road to TibooburraToday we hit the dirt and headed towards Tibooburra, the last of the tarmac for several days. Studying the road closures and weather forecasts we were worried that we might find ourselves stranded for a few days if the rain fell and the road turned to slush.Lake PattersonThere is a lot of nothing around this area, but the nothing is interesting all the same. We were surprised to find that Lake Patterson and Salt Lake contained water – surrounded by dry sandy scrub. The last thing I expected to find was such a huge water mass.

We spent the night in a quaint caravan park, we looked like the only guests other than a ‘permanent’ van.
