Lightning Ridge to Bourke

We decided over breakfast this morning that we would change direction and head to Darwin. The power of advertising.............an add came on during the today show telling us that there is no better time to visit Kakadu.
Coffee stop just out of Brewarrina, we were planning to stop at the coffee shop in town but not very inviting, bars on all windows and doors.

Bourke is a large developed centre and the main industry is cotton and fruit, it is also where Prof Fred Hollows is buried, his monument is a huge granite boulder simply carved with his details,  under a Coolibah tree.

Not sure that we will be getting too much sleep tonight the caravan park is right on the highway and the road trains sound like they are coming through the van.
