From Outback Birdsville to the white sands of the Gold Coast…

It was time to leave Outback Birdsville and head east, back to the white sandy beaches of the sunny Gold Coast and the beautiful surf beaches of Surfers Paradise and Coolangatta.
The next leg of our journey would take us through the little outback towns of south east Queensland – Betoota, Windorah, Quilpie, Charleville, Morven, Mitchell, Roma, Miles, Chinchilla, Dalby, Toowoomba, Warwick and lastly, Beaudesert.

The legendary Oodnadatta Track is an unsealed, 615-kilometre road between Marla on the Stuart Highway, and Marree in the northern Flinders Ranges and at the southern end of the Birdsville Track.

The track traces the route of the old Overland Telegraph Line and the Old Ghan Railway.

Along the way were remote settlements, lots of history, quirky desert sights and the enormous, Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre.

There were some creek crossings, a few rutted and flooded sections from the recent rain, mud, dust, heat and millions of flies but the landscape was beautiful and camping under the night sky with millions of stars was amazing.
