Leaving Ilfracombe our route took us through Longreach and then via WInton to refuel and then due West to Boulia. The Winton Road to Boulia is sealed but much of it is only single lane so approaching Road Trains are to be respected! There are a lot of wider sections, both where there are extensive floodways and specifically created for passing.
We travelled almost 300km fro then day and stopped at the Poddy Flat Rest Area (pictured), about 90km West of Winton; that left us with similar distance to cover the following day into Boulia.
