The Orewa Express got into top gear, arriving at Mataranka just before 1.00pm.
It's a nice, little town with several caravan parks, a hotel with accommodation and a Roadhouse with comfy, clean cabins.
Most importantly, it has a small supermarket!
We took a small cabin, shouted ourselves to lunch at a nearby cafe, then stocked up on some essentials at the supermarket.
Looking forward to long, hot showers and a comfortable bed tonight.
We have a long ride to Katherine tomorrow.
Did 73kms today.
