Camped at Cooper\'s creek 10 Klms east of Windorah plenty of blue claw to wet your appitite. Look for Points of interest (P.O.I.) signs on the side of the road eg; J.C. Hotel Ruins S 25 22\'40.0\" E 141 51\'18.8\" Native Wells S 25 21\'29.9\" E 141 51\'18.8\" Treat these wells with the utmost respect. The road is good all the way to Boulia, as we were in straight after the floods ( the road had only been open to 4WDs for three days) there was still a lot of water around and many detours one was 78 Klms around lake Machattie as you will see on a map called the flood road. The country was as good as it could ever be after the rain, slow down and enjoy this part of the country camp near a sand ridge, make a fire of Gidgee or Mulga wood and enjoy a damper on the coals like the explorers, bushman and drovers before you for you really are in remote country. Go up to Deon\'s lookout S 25 42\'59.6\" E 140 53\'37.5\" between turn off West of Windorah and Betoota Pub ( closed down 1997) the views of the surrounding areas are spectatular. There are a lot more attractions to see in this part of the desert country. Fuel at Windorah, Birdsville, Bedourie and Boulia. Pays to take spares, fuel, water and food, stay with your vehicle if you do break down.
