Towards Tibooburra

We’re now in Tibooburra, a name many people in NSW recognize because it’s often mentioned on weather reports as having the top temperature of the day. Today, however, it’s fairly cool, a mild autumn day, with light rain falling for the last ten minutes. We’re watching the weather with some trepidation, keen to avoid a repeat of our previous trip when we got flooded in at Innamincka for a week. It’s all dirt roads out here,hundreds of miles of fine dust that turns to mud with a bit of rain. So we’re hoping this rain won’t settle in!

The photo is taken with the iPhone, on a slight hill about 100km from Tibooburra. It’s impossible to capture the vastness of the landscape with a basic camera – probably with any camera. But I hope the image gives a hint of it – now imagine that landscape for 360degrees all around….
