Day 1 – 1st April
We left Brisbane just before 6pm, we heard on the traffic report the main Highways were bumper to bumper and there had been a multi car accident on the Ipswich Hwy heading west causing big delays. So we decided to take the longer way in km’s but most likely shorter in time through Esk, Gatton, Clifton to Allora for our first night pulling in rather late. There were several other vans already there it was a fairly quiet night.
Day 2 – 2nd April
We had a big day travel today, leaving Allora and heading down the New England Hwy, planning to stop near Narrabri for the night. But none of the rest stops looked that inviting so we pushed on, they got worst the closer we got to Coonabarabran. So we pushed on a bit further to a rest area at Hickory Falls. 3 other vans were already settled in for the night. Was a pretty good spot for the night, there was some Hwy noise.
