Although much of the road between Thargomindah and Innamincka was sealed, there were some dirt sections.
It was on one of these that we spotted a sand goanna, ambling across the road. It ran a lot faster when we slowed down!
After Nick stopped the car, Vaughan gave chase. I wasn't expecting him to be successful, so took my time exiting.
I don't know if it was Nick and I or the goanna who was most surprised by Vaughan's success!
Our boy was super-chuffed with his first-ever goanna - and so were we!
