Binnaway to Lees Camping Reserve (502km, 6hrs)
1. RIVERSIDE CAMP
I got a little obsessed with the morning light and mist rising from the river(Binnaway). Also had the absolute pleasure of a fox sneaking up on the ducks in the mist that I was obsessing over. So cool; it seemed to just sit and contemplate, finally deciding to leave them.
LR was camping in her popup tent that night and when I checked in on her I could hardly find her under the sleeping bag and duna, twas a nippy night.
2. BINNAWAY to BURREN JUNCTION BORE BATH 193km 2.21hrs -Kamilaroi Hwy x Burren Bore rd, Burren junction (3km E of town)
When I could finally drag myself away from the creek, we headed for the Burren Junction Bore Baths to warm up (closed for summer for obvious reasons). And what an experience to have after sitting in a car for 2 weeks. A relaxing hot soak comes from the Great Artesian Basin and is approximately two million years old! Natural pressure sends the water to the surface through an artesian bore and it maintains a constant temperature of 38 degrees Celsius. contains reputed therapeutic qualities that relieve aching muscles.
