23rd April, 2023.

Leaving Mt.Isa we travelled south on the Boulia-Mt.Isa Highway, we turned (R) onto the Urandangi North Rd (this road was closed up until yesterday & open only to high clearance 4WD), it’s just under 100klms to Urandangi. We saw quite a large Wedgetail Eagle lurking in the nearby trees eying off the road kill. The road was really quite good, coming into Urandangi it was very obvious of where the Georgina River had visited & the damage it caused. The town which consisted of a pub/shop – the only real building in town was quite deserted still, apparently the river was about 30cms throughout the building, there was a few out buildings & caravans around the place but no human presence was seen when we drove through.

After driving 103klms we were back in the Northern Territory, we camped up at Tobermory Station which is a working station with an amazing campground, they have built a rather large levy bank around the homestead, camp ground & work sheds hoping to prevent any water damage from flooding – apparently a few years back they suffered from massive flood damage, after the enormous rains early this year they are currently contemplating increasing the size of the levy banks. Tobermory Station is a great camp spot & an ideal overnight stop for traveler’s going east or west.
