Day 13 – Bourke

I got up early and it was absolutely freezing. I met up with the guys in the Outback Car Trek 2012 at the site of the Back ‘O’ Bourke Hotel and we had a chat about the rally. I actually stayed out in the cold – in the Ute – for an hour or so taking photos of the cars as they left their staging point and then came back to the van for a well earned hot shower and hot drink. I was happy with my morning adventure.

Mid-morning we went back to the Back’O’Bourke Information Centre and took our time going through the exhibition. It is very comprehensive and impressive. It was cold and raining outside so we went back to the Back’O’Bourke Café for a nice hot bowl of soup for Ann and a Roo burger for me. Very good.

We went back to the caravan park as I was a bit tired by this stage and we were a bit sick of the rain.

We booked in for another night at Kidmans Camp.
