The camp behind the shop (servo) is great nice grassy area,
The people that own the shop are friendly & very helpful. Walk across the road to the pub & have a game of pool with the bartender, top spot.

We got stuck there for a couple of days in 06 when a shock absorber crapped out, and enjoyed the stay.

There's a little track that winds down to a reserve on the Paroo. It starts just NE of the Pub and leaves the road near a house (sorry was 18 months ago...)

There was broken glass around unfortunately, but a good overnight stop.

Good to see you responded Laura. I thought redfive would have miffed half the EO readers at least in asking "Gentlemen.........." I know some used to think this a blokey forum, but I think most are over that.
Cheers,

No worries John! I

m sure there are a few still out there that cringe at the tought of us "girlies" knowing a bit about cars / 4wd / desert travelling / anything other than washing and cleaning!!

I like the idea of having a good stir anyway!!

I know one lady who has been referred to by a certain Doug as 'mate' on more than one occasion, even asking if she was defending women. I think there are many wrong assumptions made.

I went on a motorcycle ride and ended up in Wanaaring.
Walked in got a water, beer and then dinner in that order.
Friendliest publican I've met in a while.
Only issue was accom at pub was full.........first time in 18 months.....

They did a ring around and got a bed for me at the CWA house down the road!
Country hospitality at it's best.

I'd go back in a heartbeat
