Australian Outback - Photo of the Week

If you ever want to see more of Australia than the typical Sydney Harbour shots, then you might want to see the blog Amazing Australian Adventures.  

The owner of this site, Red, has done more camping and been to more places off the beaten track than we can possibly imagine!   Little jealous I must admit.

Red visits places that I would have just driven straight past, and finds cool stuff there!!   A lot of Australian locations have weird names, and Red finds them all it seems!!!
And she knows all the best bakeries too, which is pretty important when you are on the road.

And today, Red shows us her Queensland outback camping locations.   Great photos which highlight the beauty of the Australian Outback.

Poddy Creek Camp is between Winton and Middleton.  It's just a rest stop with a toilet, but the view over the nearby ranges across the endless spinifex is marvellous.  And a campfire under the stars, or to boil the billy in the morning makes it perfect!

Swanvale Lookout is near Stonehenge - the Australian version!  This magnificent 'Jump Up' is a perfect campsite - great lookout, off the road, private - and great birdwatching for those who care...  For most of our 3 night stay, we were there alone - and with a campfire, clear sky and killer view, we could have stayed there forever!

Noccundra Waterhole, near the Noccundra Hotel out from Thargomindah en route to Coopers Creek was a great place to set up for a few days.  Enjoy a meal at the pub, hot showers for a gold coin donation to the RFDS, and the peace & quiet of the waterhole. Our first time won't be our last time!
