The country from Port Augusta to Dubbo is green like I have never seen it before. The Darling River at Wilcannia is 2m below the road bridge - normally it is 12m below. Dry lakes are full, and the Topar Hotel is a little island connected to the road.
To do this trip properly - ie to stop and look at stuff - you need a minimum of 7 days. 2 weeks would be better. I really do need to do this trip properly.
