We have a little tradition that we like to leave after Chris finishes work and get a few hours under our belt. Makes us feel like we are really off on our next adventure. This time was no different with us stopping at our usual place when heading west Swinging Bridge at Cooyar.
We had a very early start the next morning wanting to put a big full days drive in and knock off a few km’s. This trip we had some Audible books we listen to via the Audible App on our phones through the car speakers. It certainly helped keep our minds occupied and the km’s just seemed to slip away. We had a great run and stopped for the night approximately 100km’s east of Quilipie at a large area near a communication tower. It was well off the road, private, quiet and we had it all to ourselves.There was plenty of wood lying around so we had a nice fire and an early night.
We weren’t in a hurry the next morning on the road by 9am with Cooper Creek near Windorah as our goal. With us planning on being there early arvo to just enjoy the area.
There is a lot of road kill on the road, more than we have seen before. It was like slalom through the road kill.
We arrived at Cooper Creek just before lunch, we took the track down to the creek and have a great spot overlooking the creek. After a quick setup, we had lunch and then sat back and enjoyed the creek and bird life.
Cooper Creek is a lot more popular than last time we were there with campers on both sides of the river. On one side there is a 12km nature trail.
