Boulder/Kalgoorlie

Location

Discovery Parks - Kalgoorlie Goldfields, 286 Burt St, Boulder WA 6432, Australia

Info

Arrive for a few days sight seeing in Kalgoorlie/Boulder before heading off to the Great Central. Still sorting out various thing in the JB Caravan. Nothing serious. More like where to put what and ways of doing thinks. The cruiser seems to handle the extra weight better than expected. We did have a tail wind all the way from Perth. I think it was well worth the money spent at Toyotune. Thanks Alan. 😁😁😁 The JB will be quicker to set up than the Jayco Expanda. Especially when we have our routine sorted.
