Day 9 of my circumnavigation of Australia. Huge day today. Travelled 1123kms. Not long to go now before I turn left and head back across to the Eastern side of the nation. Looking forward to crossing the Nullabor. Had a bit an incident on the road today with a wide load. Do to the mining boom there is a lot of mine related activity and one thing you see regularly are demountable buildings being moved on the back of trucks. They are very wide. I met one as it came around a slight bend, but the issue was it swung wide and it was already a wide load, so I had very little lane left and I couldn’t run off the road as there was a 10 metre drop. I have no idea how I fitted in the space that was left. When I get to heaven I think God will let me know it was a little God miracle, so in that light:- Thanks God.
I passed over the Tropic of Capricorn. Looking at the map this is equal to Rockhampton on the other side of the Nation.
I also passed a section of road that is used as an airstrip by the Royal Flying Doctor Service in an emergency.
I stopped by a dry river bed and walked across it. It’s was kind of eerie to know in the wet season huge amounts of water pour down the area. It was very wide. Imagine the bird life etc that would be here when it’s flowing. Here are some pics
Just arrived Geraldton and have had to get a new back tyre. All set now for Norseman tomorrow.
