We met Mr Suzuki in the Boulia CV park yesterday where he is having some rest days. He has walked from Brisbane and is planning to be in Birdsville for the races and will continue to PERTH! His handcart is mainly loaded with water. The walk is purely for his own enjoyment/challenge.


This photo was taken as we left this morning for Mt Isa. We had some bad luck coming out of Diamantina NP when we lost a tyre from our trailer and 'scallopped' the wheel. Nothing available in Boulia so here we are. The Plenty Hwy will have to wait for another time. But I wouldn't have missed the Diamantina for quids!

There has been no rain in Diamantina NP. Not much west of Windorah. The road in through Monkira was good, just needed to slow down on the black soil as the base was hard but powdery on the surface. The road out to Boulia was not so good.

Thanks for the follow up, the reports we got down here sounded a bit more widespread. We nearly got caught at diamontina gates in 2006 in winter rain. We packed up and bolted to Winton. Those that stayed out the showers that night stayed for an extra week by all reports. Fun fun fun.
