We left Quobba on the Blowholes Road heading the 80km towards Carnarvon, when we heard an unfamiliar knocking noise; we pulled over and could see that there was an oil leak from the rear wheel area. Unfortunately there was no mobile phone signal and we could see that to try and drive further would result in the wheel seizing and …
After fuelling up, we left Coral Bay at about 9.00 am, and headed towards Carnarvon. Carnarvon is only about 275 kms, so we expected to arrive around midday.
