Cairns to Lawn Hill – A Rough Start

We were desperate for a camping trip and the winter was quickly passing us by, would we make it? We don’t do the outback in summer, I don’t fancy sleeping in a hot tent and sweating all day. It was August 2015 and we finally got the break in Adrian’s work that we’d been waiting…
