Following the Trail of Burke and Wills

 We loved our time camping on the banks of the Cooper Creek and following the trail of Burke and Wills as they attempted to cross Australia and claim more land for Victoria.

 We also took a day to explore Coongie Lakes which is a freshwater body of water in the middle of the desert just near Innamincka.

 More pioneers blazed a trail on the trees.
 We saw many dingoes scavenging at the local tip of Innanmincka but only managed to get one in shot on this camera.
We loved our time at Birdsville and it was one of the highlights of our trip so far. One of the highlights was that I ate a curried camel pie- it's an award winner for the local bakery there. Tasted OK but the meat was a bit stringy.
Hugs, Jan Mac
