We had planned to see if we could find some tracks into the Collier Range today, north of Meekatharra, but after a fair bit of scrub-scratching we backed out after not finding much at all to report about.

This stretch of the Great Northern Highway has some fabulous roadside parking/camping bays, with the best being 193km form of Meekatharra on the banks of the Gasgoyne River. We stopped here for lunch and debated staying for the night but we need to be home on Saturday morning and there's a long way to go yet.

I'm afraid we've come to the end of the journey and now it's a case of hitting tar for as many hours a day as we can manage.
