Our Tagalong20 trip began with a 2 day road trip from our home in Melbourne traveling up the Calder Highway (869km – maplink). We stopped overnight at a free camp behind the Royal Hotel in Sea Lake (Vic), as long as we dined in the pub. After a great feed and very quiet night (only van in the carpark) we continued on to Broken Hill the next day.
Happy hour gathering
Arriving at the Broken Hill Outback Resort along with 16 other Bailey caravans it’s time to re-connect with friends from previous trips and meet new friends at the first happy hour. We gathered around and had a few drinks while the organising team provided the group with a briefing.
We then all participated in the welcoming dinner prepared by the team at the Outback Resort – nice tucker. We just had to battle the bloody flies!!!
The evening rounded out with a short, sharp dust storm and a splattering of rain; welcome to the unpredictable outback.
Here’s a YouTube video, which Liam took on his drone, of the resort and surrounding landscape…
Would we return?
This caravan park is fairly new and well set-out BUT its 16.6kms from town. The primary reason it was chosen was because it was pet friendly. If we were to return to Broken Hill we would look for a caravan park closer to town. Check out TripAdvisor for more information about things to do in Broken Hill.
