Once set up at our new home in Mount Isa. We went about doing all the usuals choirs that need to be done when in a major town. We also had a tailer suspension repair to do.
Our new travel companions arrived in town all the way from Brisbane. Mick and Ange Nichols and there 2 children Lennox and Zara.
Apart from doing some of the usuals tourists things together. The Nichols family also had choirs to do including a zip repair on their camper.
With all the jobs done we left Mount Isa and made our way north/west to Lawn Hill National Park.
We stayed 3 nights in the national park. We spent the time enjoying the gorges that the national park is famous for. Mick and myself rented canoes and with the boys help paddling though the gorge.
Once our time was up in the national park we drove the short distant of 10km to our next camp, Adels Grove. Here we were able to relax in the tropical shaded campground and enjoy a few luxuries such as a bar, restaurant, hot showers and phone service.
After a relaxing time at Adels Grove we drove to the small town of Gregory Downs.
Here we did a over night stay at a free camp a little out of town on the Gregory river. As free camps go this was a great camp. We set up camp only metres away from a clear running creek. We spent the afternoon playing in the water and floating down the creek on tubes.
From Gregory downs we headed further north. We made Burketown for lunch then found another free camp at Leichhardt Falls. 70 kilometres south east of Burketown.
After our overnight stay in at the falls we continued east to the seaside town of Karumba.
Stay tuned for the next chapter of the Kethel boys Adventure with the Nichols family.
Will the Nichols family get to see a sunset over the water, will the boys get out of there pj’s before 9 o’clock, will Zara look cute yet again, will the Nichols buy a new faster kettle, will I ever be able to find the missing socks that will match the single ones in my washing basket.
