Bourke To Lightning Ridge (3hr40min315km)
Kicking up some dirt again, we discovered oodles of wildlife but you can see why there is so much road kill on the highways. They really don’t have a brain between them. As long as your taking your time its all good, but we found that the wild life love the centre of the road and then insist on running along in front of the car on the road, before they realise the obvious.
All the dirt roads we have taken have been brilliant, reasonably smooth, minimal corrugation and very little traffic. If you are going dirt …go winter.
This was only a short time on the road so we could spend the day exploring Lightning ridge.
