It rained a little overnight so we spent the first part of the morning in Tibooburra, waiting to see what the weather would do. A stroll up the street, a visit to the National Parks office and the Courthouse museum, and then coffee and muffin for morning tea at the shop/cafe.

The photos are of the Albert Hall and the Family Hotel next door to it. There is another pub here, but I didn’t get a photo of it with the iPhone – which is currently the only way I can blog photos just now.

We headed to Milparinka mid-morning, via Sturt’s Cairn on Mt Poole and Depot Glen where Sturt’s exploration party spent 6 months stranded by drought in the 1840s. Then back to Milparinka for lunch at the pub – M’s population is about 5.

Tomorrow, as long as the rain holds off, we’re heading to Innamincka – and probably well out of phone range, so the blog may be quiet for a few days.

  1. Hey Bronwyn had to track you down where ever you are and say BIG congrats on your Ruby nomination. You’ve got my vote !!

  2. Jenn,
    Thanks so much for your congrats and good wishes! (Sorry I didn’t respond straight away – I couldn’t read blog comments on my iPhone, and it’s been busy since I got back within internet range!)

    Looking forward to seeing you in Brisbane.
