Once the car is headed home it seems to want to get there quickly. From Broken Hill to Pelican Waters is around 1,750 kms. We divert by way of Bourke and visit the Back O Bourke tourist centre, which brings to life the story of Outback New South Wales from the 1800’s.
After Bourke the road is well known to us so it is overnight free camps and re-visits to Walgett (aboriginal word for ‘the meeting place of two rivers’ and the home of cotton, wool and wheat industries), Moree, Goondiwindi (‘the resting place of the birds’ on the NSW QLD border), Toowoomba (the most populous inland city after Canberra) and finally home.
