Day 33 – Surat to Lightning Ridge

Up early and filled the Ute with diesel before hitching up. Ann rang Lightning Ridge Outback Resort Caravan Park and booked a site for tonight. We then headed down the highway and more bad roads and road works.

Morning tea was at a nice bakery in St George. We also went to IGA and had a bit of a look around town. We both liked St George.

We then drove through more road works and bad roads before stopping for lunch in the park at Dirranbandi. We bought some supplies at the pub and continued on to Hebel, which is a tiny town with tiny Caravan Park, a quirky General Store and a Pub.

Then back on the highway and on to Lightning Ridge Outback Resort where we secured a good site. We both want to come back here. The deal is to stay 4 nights and only pay for 3 – we would stay for 8 nights as there seems to be an awful lot to see and do around town.

After a long walk around town we had a BBQ steak dinner in the van. It had been a big day with nice weather during the day but cold at night. As long as we can stay in a powered site the caravan electrics seem to be behaving.
