Day 6 – Ilfracombe to Tambo 385km


A lot of ground to cover to today and a lot to see. And the excitement will be building for the famous chook races at Tambo.

Leaving Ilfracombe first up in the morning we’ll make the short trip west to Longreach for a couple of photos at some of the iconic attractions before heading south. Taking the back roads again we’ll head through cattle country and down to Isisford for a quick stop.

After that it’s on to Blackall for lunch and a look around.

Leaving Blackall we will follow the Barcoo River on the old Blackall Stock Route, popping out briefly on the Landsborough Highway before getting back on the Stock Route.

Arriving late in the afternoon for a quick wash up and then to the Carrangarra Hotel for what is to guaranteed to be a great night.
