No wonder she said yes, Boonoo Boonoo Falls is breathtaking. It is an effort to get to also – 43 km from Stanthorpe, Queensland or 23 km from Tenterfield, New South Wales, turn west. It is 4 km on the Boonoo Boonoo

New Outback Camp in Beltana, South Australia

On arrival at the Dig Tree, my first thought was; I’m here.  But where am I, I asked myself?   I’m on the bank of a cream coloured river
