Day 4 - Broken Hill

Menindee - Broken Hill

Had a little bit of a sleep in this morning before some bacon and egg muffins for breaky and a coffee or two.
Addison and Layla got the fire cranking again....

Popped into town to visit a historical grave site, Dost Mahomet. Dost Mahomet was one of three sepoy camel drivers recruited from Afghanistan to take part in the Burke and Wills expedition. Dost Mahomet was one of the party that manned the camp at the now famous Dig Tree near Coopers Creek whilst Burke, Wills, Grey and King headed north to the Gulf of Carpentaria. They waited 4 months for the main party's return, abandoning the camp to return to Menindee only hours before Bourkes return to the Coopers Creek depot.

Fill up the car again before back to camp to pack the vans up for the short trip to Broken Hill...

We arrive around lunchtime, set up for 2 days then grab a CC and relax for the afternoon...
