Boulia to Mount Isa and Beyond

Boulia to Mount Isa in Queensland at 300kms on a single track road was excellent with just one stopping point at Dajarrra, a small Aboriginal settlement with fuel, one shop and a really nice post office that had been done as a museum. We stopped in Mount Isa, a huge mining town for provisions and fuel and then onto to Camooweal (189kms) on the endless arrow straight Barclay Highway. Camooweal is actually a part of Mount Isa and at 189kms away is reputed to have the longest main street in the world. We stopped the night at Camooweal Roadhouse frequented by outback road workers, miners, roadtrain drivers, sheep shearers etc. People watching is just great entertainment.

Just after Camooweal one of the main purposes of this years adventure comes to fruition as we cross the border into the Northern Territory which is the only state we haven't visited before. The first stop of the day is the Barclay Roadhouse at 257kms for fuel and then on to Three Ways (195kms) and finally Tenant Creek (27kms) and a nights rest. Threeways is an important junction as the Barclay Highway from the east joins with the main road that cuts through the red centre of Australia from Darwin to Adelaide with Alice Springs in the middle and that's where we are heading.
