Day 6 – Innamincka to Birdsville

We got up nice and early so we could get to the mechanics and buy a new tire. We had a lady take the tire off the rim. It was quite quick to be over and done with so we were back out on the road by about 9:50am.

We took the Cordillo Downs road north towards Birdsville. The road for most of the trip was quite smooth and comfortable driving but in some parts in was very corrugated and rough. Some parts were even soft and sandy. On the way we saw an old sheep shearing shed which in its peek held the record for the most sheep shorn in one season.

We also stopped at the Cadelga Homestead ruins, the people that lived there had to abandon their property during a really bad drought.

Along this road there were lots of gates – I had to get out heaps of times to open and close them so we could pass. It got very annoying.

When we arrived in Birdsville we met one of dad’s friends from the Land Rover Club, after talking to them for a while Dad and I spent some time walking the river banks taking photos of the hundreds of birds there.

We had dinner at the Birdsville pub with Dad’s friends. I had Steak and chips that was YUMMY :food:
