Leaving Thursday morning we stopped at Devils Marbles for a look at the absolutely amazing boulders naturally piled on top of each other. We would have liked more time here if planned better....the children had a great time climbing over rocks and seeing a Dingo close up.

Thursday night we reached Dunmarra for our first night in an unpowered site along side some buffalos'. We didn't get there to after 5.30 as we wanted to get a far a we could so we then only had 200km to drive to get to Mataranka early on Friday morning.

 

We had met some more new friends in Wycliff Well (but they definitely did not compare to Jules, Lucky Phil, Shaza and Steve !!!! ha ha) who were travelling with their four children for 3 months. They provided some secrets on passing the time in the car and were very kind to gave us a book to read to the kids.  Ian sat in the back seat and read this book called "Tashi" and the kids were so engrossed in this book for over an hour they wanted more than Ian could give as his legs and bottom were getting numb (cramped) from being squashed between two child seats.  I think we might save this book for when we go east as it will be over 4 days of solid driving.
