Three months after registration and successfully completing four thousand kilometres of short trips around Victoria, it was time for MYA30 to do its first big trip.
Loaded up with fuel, water and camping equipment we headed off to Bundaberg. I had already spent several nights in front of the computer with my GPS plotting a route which did not go on any of the highways, this added another 900km further than going up the Newell Highway but would suite me and MYA30 much better.
Here are some of the locations I passed through on my way. Broadford, Corowa, Lockhart, Lake Congelligo, Nundle, Bonalbo, Killarney, Cecil Plains, Murgon and Gin Gin. The best driving and scenic roads were around the Border Rangers area on the New South Wales, Queensland borders. The narrow roads, with no traffic, swept though the mountains, and were a delight for MYA30, although some of the steep grades required second gear to climb up them and slow down going down them.
In the two weeks we travelled 5800km and averaged 16km per litre = 45mpg and never touched the tool kit.
