Reflections by an infrequent traveller and accidental camper of a 9- day package tour taken in early June, 2015 along the Savannah Way - a route across north-western Queensland, Australia from Cairns to Karumba, down to Lawn Hill (Boodjamulla National Park) , and back via Undarra lava tubes.

These musings are personal reminders, sharing possible strategies to enhance any future explorations of the area.
