Day 9 – Lightning Ridge to Brewarrina

… Been out of contact for a few days, no internet…..

The park is still busy as we pack up.   We check the radar for rain, but fortunately most of it is south of us, around Coonamble.  Just before 10 we head off.  One last time through town and we hit the road to Walgett.   About 7 or 8km out of town is Stanley, a huge Emu Sculpture made of amongst other things several VW beetles, so we stop for a quick photo opp.
