Flew into Kununurra Sunday 22March, drove out Tuesday 24th early morning heading to QLD before all the borders closing due to the corona virus, we are starting a new job at Normanton in the gulf of QLD.
We did daily temperatures(which were all good) in case we got pulled up by police. Crossing over to the NT not a problem as they were closing the border after we got through, 1st night we stayed at Renner Springs (NT), quite a nice little spot – lotz of mossies. Next night found us in Mt Isa, got into QLD a few hours before they shut down, the army & police were on the border checking NT bound vehicles. Did a little shopping, not many people in caravan park & the managers said they would be closing down in the near future. Drove to Flinders River (approx 60klms south of Normanton) & camped the night – lovely, didn’t catch any fish but was enjoyable. Arrived at Normanton Friday morning just after smoko & set up our new home for the next few months or so. Start work Monday. 🙂
