We are camped near a small wetlands area next to the Birdsville Track that is part of Clayton Creek Station. They have provided toilets, a small shower and, best of all, a cut down corrugated tank that you can fill with hot bore water at around 45 Celsius. It is quite brisk tonight and it was with great pleasure that we all shared the tank’s hot mineral waters. It is funny on a trip like this that you start feeling ready for bed at 8.30pm. Today we travelled 460 Km down the Birdsville track. We passed numerous bores down the length of the...
