Jun 26, 2016 - DAY 66

Day 66 Had to be at the Qantas Founders Museum by 9.30am in rushing we left our cowhide behind (bugger) as this is Russ’s ground sheet and it covers our front if we have to go through water. The tour was well worth doing.They have one of the fist DC3's that Qantas ever flew, the first 707 ever to be bought outside of the US and their first 747 which first flew in 1979. This has used up the morning so down to Barcaldine and found a great gravel pit that we sheared with ourselves and cooked on an open fire.

Apr 20, 2016 - Jericho

Decided to stay another day as site so beautiful and quiet and peaceful, also a beautiful day. After breakfast we took Ruby and Chilli for a walk along the river, and they had a ball running in and out of the bush and the river. Back at camp we discovered there were turtles in the river. They were really cute and obviously well used to people feeding them. There were lots of little fish as well and they also devoured bits of bread. We saw bigger fish jumping out of the water at times and lots of bird life including a kingfisher that sat in...

Apr 19, 2016 - Sapphire to Jericho

Stopped for lunch at Alpha before deciding to stay the night at the next town of Jericho. The camp spot at Jericho is by the River Jordan which is apparently south of Lake Galilee (true story!). Absolutely beautiful spot-well laid out for vans. Only 2 other vans there tonight. Walked Ruby and Chilli into town which consists of post office, store, pub and the smallest drive in picture theatre in the southern hemisphere (apparently). Very cute, also has old canvas seats in the back. There are usually movies once a month, but not while we were...

Jul 7, 2015 - Day 10 - Jericho / Redbank Riverside Camp

Today was a longer day than usual. We didn't arrive here until after 4:00 but we wanted to get here because it had such good comments in Wiki Camps and deserves them all. Although we were late in we got a spot right on the river bank. There must be about 30 or so others here as well! There are lovely trees along the river and 2 resident Pelicans who glide serenely up and down past the camp area. There is only a toilet here but for just a donation, this is a beautiful place to stop. Today's trip took us north along the Gregory Hwy to Emerald...

Jun 14, 2012 - Ilfracombe to Jericho

Ilfracombe to Jericho was around a 2 and a half hour drive and thanks to Dylan's state of origin hang-over I got to drive! We'd chatted to people in Ilfracombe about places on the way to Rockhampton and they said Jericho is a nice quiet little town and you could either camp at the showgrounds with power, toilets and hot showers for a fee, or you could camp down on the river with toilets and no power for free. So we arrived in Jericho and checked out both spots, showgrounds weren't very exciting but along the river was beautiful. It was...
