    We Lost the World’s Longest Fence

    The Dingo Fence, or Wild Dog Barrier Fence as it is correctly called, starts in the north-east of Australia, between Jandowae and Jimbour in the Western Downs region of Queensland. It then makes it way through Queensland, western New South Wales and into South Australia, ending to the west of Eyre Peninsula. The fence was constructed to help prevent livestock loss from these predators. We really enjoyed driving approximately half of the 110km Dingo Fence…

    Ambling Around Jandowae, Qld

    Jandowae, Queensland – so much to do and see in around this beautiful little town. Jandowae has a population of around 740 and is located in the Western Downs Region, Queensland, Australia. The town of Jandowae is situated on the traditional lands of the Barunggam People. We really enjoyed our few nights at the Jandowae Showground, which we found was a good base for exploring the local area. The railway came to Jandowae in 1914…

    The Dig Tree Reserve, Qld

    The 14 kilometres from the turn off on the Adventure Way were tough going, but once we arrived at the iconic Dig Tree site we agreed it was well worth it.  We spent two nights camped right beside Cooper Creek and it was stunning!  The Dig Tree Reserve site is located in remote south-western Queensland in the heart of Channel Country.  There was lots of water and plenty of birdlife making the most of this…

    Kooroorinya Falls Nature Reserve, Qld

    Whilst we love a good free camp, inexpensive locations like this one tick a number of boxes for us: clean toilets and showers; opportunities to meet likeminded travellers; not so crowded; great photo opportunities, just to name a few! This has to be one of outback Queensland’s best kept secrets! If you are travelling along the Flinders Highway, turn south at Prairie and follow the Prairie-Muttaburra Road for approximately 54km to enjoy a stay at…
