Carnarvon Gorge - December 2006

Having spent the previous weekend working overtime on a "Disaster Recovery" test, we took our last opportunity to visit Queensland before having an extra mouth to feed and an extra bum to clean. I took two days off work (Monday/Tuesday). Two factors played part in where we went:

  1. We now need to put about 3000 km on the car a month to meet our leasing conditions.
  2. We have to visit central QLD (away from the coast) some time. It doesn't seem right to say "we toured QLD" if we didn't leave the coast.

After Nadine found the website for Takaraka I was sold. Carnarvon Gorge was our target.

Our Itinery went:
