My sister, brother-in-law and I are going out to the Birdsville Races this year. http://www.birdsvilleraces.com/home.html
It will be our first time to go there. Towing a small caravan for my sister and brother-in-law, I'm just going to camp in the back of the van. We will more than likely leave a few days before as according to the site the caravan park is first in first serve during that week. We're hoping to get in there as my sister has a prosthesis leg and wont hack camping on the banks of the Diamantina River very well. We're taking my sisters dog a poodle but I'm leaving my girl Phoebe home on this trip.
Any recommendation for any places to stay on the way out there (coming from Brisbane) as we will take a couple of days to get there or any other recommendations ie roads, places to see and do.
I'm so looking forward to this trip.
