After a snugly night under the doona we woke to a cool 16 feels like 13 Christmas morning in Ivanhoe. The caravan park sits behind the corner store/petrol station and we were in need of fuel so we had a sleep in as fuel wasn’t opening until 9am. We called home and spoke to our folks for Christmas Day before making tracks for Mungo NP.
Chasing Wildlife on the dirt roads
Can you spot the emu’s! Darn things were happily drinking away as we drove on past but oh no get out and walk towards them with a camera and off they run! I guess at least Im heading towards my 10,000 steps 😔
It didn’t take long before we hit the dry weather only signs and the red dirt roads. These are the roads we’ll travel for the next few days at least. It’s only about 200km but I was allowing anywhere from 4 to 6hrs as road conditions can vary significantly out here.
Mungo National Park
WhooHoo we finally made it !!!
The boys are pretty darn dirty. Surprisingly after the rains the roads were in really good condition and we made good time to the park.
We followed the Ivanhoe/Menindee Rd and weaved our way into the park, arriving at about 2ish approximately 4 hours later which was pretty good timing with a few camera stops and a snack break along the way.
Once we were all settled into camp we wandered through camp to the lookout track.
Early Christmas dinner, well earlish anyways when sunset is 8.30pm, so we could hunt out a sunset location.
Sunset was a bit of a fizzer both colour and location, but there was plenty of wildlife to take in.
