Just over 9000kms, two months of travel, a ton of new lifers and we're home. Here we reflect on our birding adventure, what we learned and what we'll do differently - or not - next time! We'd love to hear your thoughts.
Our stopover in Bourke was just a one nighter, but boy we loved the red-tailed black cockatoos we saw there. This pair were real smoochers, and they were easy to find...
It was a long but enjoyable drive from Leeton through Forbes, Parkes, Dubbo and then on to Coonabarabran...the Newell Highway is not in the best shape, to be honest, with many worn parts, only exacerbated by heavy truck use. But all was forgiven when we got to Coonabarabran and found the Warrumbungles...
WE'RE ON THE ROAD
Our big drive for 2022 is from Melbourne to the Iron Range in Cape York in far north Queensland - and today is pretty much our first day. We left a wet and cold Melbourne yesterday and made Cobram our first stop. This is a new town, for us, but we knew that visiting the Murray was a sure winner. We always love being around the Murray!
