Broken Hill to Tibooburra

28th May 2021

Distance:  334km
Fuel: 35L

Woke up this morning to a heavy fog. We all started packing away fairly early and were on the road by 9am. The fog and clouds slowly burned off as we went north.

After the flat country further south the first part of the road to Tibooburra was relatively hilly and the road surprisingly twisty. The further north we drove the more arid the scenery.

We stopped at Packsaddle for fuel and a meal before continuing north. The road to Tibooburra is now bitumen for its entire distance.

Tibooburra is a very small town with a population of about 134, everything seems to be run from the General Store/Post Office/Service station. We arrived at the service station to check in to the caravan park and tried to book two powered  sites for us but were told that three cars is three sites so rather than book powered sites booked three unpowered sites for $20 each.

After setting up our camp I filled up with fuel but the kids decided to wait for the morning.

The Road is Open

At least the road is open which bodes well for tomorrow.
