I can't believe it's already New Year's Eve!
I love New Year's Eve so much, not just because it's the most awesome party night of the year 🎉, but because I am such a sucker for new beginnings! I love the feeling of being able to start fresh and make new year's resolutions (even though I never keep them!).
This is a photo of my absolute favourite sunrise of 2020, at Charlotte Plains, Queensland, right near the start of our trip. I feel the same sense of awesome new beginnings whenever I watch the sunrise, and I hope to see many more in 2021.
Wherever you are celebrating the new year, I hope you're safe and happy, and that you have an amazing 2021! I know that 2020 has been tough, but I hope you've been able to slow down and find things that have made you smile. Happy new year!!

This is winter in Queensland!!
On the Charlotte Plains Station back in 1892, they sunk a bore 561m into the Great Artesian Basin. Now, a network of bore drains distribute the artesian water over more than 180km across the property, providing water for the animals, and for us to play in!
The water comes out warm and is full of minerals which are apparently full of wondrous health benefits, but really it was just a lovely place to soak!
And we could camp in our van, right by the water! It was heaven!

When it's time to get off the blacktop and onto the dirt! Although Cunamulla was a great little town and we had a blast meeting some long lost relatives and learning the family history, we had to start heading back and couldn't go past this ripper of a campsite.
