Tasmania Trip - Day 36

Day 36 - 1/3/2014 – Goondwindi to Bunya Mountains

We could have pushed on straight to home, but because we had a day up our sleeves we decided to take it a bit easier and have a stop over at another one of our favourite places, the Bunya Mountains.

There are only three ways to get to the Bunya Mountains. On a previous trip we had scoped out all three routes to see which access would be the easiest to get the camper up the mountain. We had to skirt around the base of the mountains to the Maidenwell side to access the path we wanted. In the process we passed through another small township called Maclagan

There wasn't much else in the main street!

It was a 30 deg day and it was a hard slog for the Pajero pulling the camper up the steep inclines. The temperature gauge hit ¾, which I have never seen before, and the air intake and water temps hit 115 deg!

After taking it slowly up the steep roads we eventually made it to the camping grounds. There were only a few other campers so we had plenty of space. We spend the rest of the afternoon just doing a short walk and taking it easy.
