Tennant Creek.

Location

BP, Paterson St, Tennant Creek NT 0860, Australia

Info

Just a fuel up and on we go. The Caltex on the way in was 3 cpl. cheaper but had a que of caravans. Typical BP being dearer. Thought the BP would have more room at the front than it had. Had to go around the the rear against the traffic flow to exit the front pumps.

Billabong Campsite Near Camooweal.

Location

19°55'15.2"S 138°06'42.1"E, 10 Barkly Hwy, Camooweal QLD 4828, Australia

Info

Didn't drive right into the Billabong Campsite, just camped closer to the road and the bridge and in the creek bed. Found out from another caravaner that the Billabong was rather crowded. Seeing as we arrived later than we had hoped I think this site is just fine. We have lit the fire and sitting around it with Aidyn. Julie & Taleah have gone for a walk. Have pizza tonight by Webber. We saw some birds of prey roosting for the night. Hawks or Kites. Will need to check out the camera shots from the Nikon later. Will post a photo or two I the gallery for this section of the trip.

Argylla Caravan Park

A bit of a panick as we drove. The sigh said "NO VACANCIES" 😬😬😬 All good, booking was OK. Going to stay another night so we can do an underground mine tour. The park is a little tight. Very close to the neighbors. Hope the kids are not too loud. Going to nick off for the afternoon to a lake up the road.
