|Almost the way we went! (We drove via Ashford).|
It was a very pretty drive across the mountains and we enjoyed a few stops en route. We purchased some supplies at Inverell (including a new glass for our camp lantern) and were still reasonably optimistic of setting up camp at Kwiambal National Park before sunset. As we traveled further though (and the roads became rougher), it became obvious that we had been too optimistic - even before the flat tyre episode!
By the time we actually reached the Lemon Tree Flat campground, there was very little light left and we worked hard to set up tents, gazebo et al by torch and lamp light - watched by possums and roos (and the odd water dragon)!
When the tantalising smell of toasting insects became all too much, we feasted on dolmades, crackers and rather fine cheese - though kept working while munching!
|The jack and spare tyre were buried in the boot ...|
