I know I have written this a million times but this is the third time in 18 months we have visited Birdsville. I remember the first time it was such an accomplishment.

#throwbackthursday #celebrating4years Each Thursday well will go back through our archives and share an old Norris Around Australia post. This week our throwback post is about the BIRDSVILLE TRACK. A Very Different Track.

The road now is practically a dirt highway mostly smooth with rocky patches here and there. Back in the day soft sand dune,… Continue reading A Very Different Track
After our overnight stint in the mining town of Leigh Creek (food for thought on the work front for the future) we headed to Lake Eyre via Marree. We had a quick stop we knew we would be back in town in a day or two so a beer at the pub and back on… Continue reading Walking on Eyre!
