If you are looking for somewhere to visit in Victoria, the Victorian High Country is up there with the best; the 4WDing was exciting yet not too extreme, the free camping was amazing, the creeks were crystal clear, there was plenty of firewood for campfires, and there was something to see at every turn… be it a breathtaking view or an historic hut.

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 Birdsville Track is a journey I thoroughly recommend and like the Oodnadatta it was an easy outback track to drive.
Check out this part of the world. The Birdsville Track was tons of fun!
Stayed tuned for more adventures as we head from the desert to the coast.
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.
