As evening fell everything quietened down and a chilly breeze rose causing us to huddled around the comforting warmth of our blazing campfire then as the nocturnal fauna slowly awakened, we snuggled down in our rooftop tent with our dog-eared books to read and listen to the soothing sound of the waterfall and dream away the night under a sky full of stars.
The Burke Development Road is an isolated section of road with nothing but properties, no campgrounds or camping, no toilets and no shops or fuel… just 560-kilometres of bulldust, corrugations and magnificent Cape York scenery.
We felt privileged to follow in the footsteps of ghosts of the past who forged their way over this rugged land… miners in search of gold, wearily wheeling their barrows full of their worldly possessions and Cameleers who trudged behind their camel teams.
The greatest part of our Aussie Outback adventure is the amazing sights along the way… so strap yourself in and come travel with us – the road ahead is packed full of suprises…

I’m a bit slow catching up with my blogs lately… our days over the past months have been long and exciting so please don’t go away as I have some incredible adventures to share with you as soon as I find time to link into wifi and sit at my computer.
The national parks, beautiful waterholes and beaches, and a sprinkle of the unknown on this journey certainly turned it into another amazing Aussie adventure and although not quite off the beaten track as we would like, it is certainly a coastline worth exploring.
