25th July Day 1-2

Off to Lightning Ridge but staying tonight at O’Shea’s in Goondiwindi. I have some photos of the last 2 days all in one .

The land is so dry out here, this is on our way to Goondiwindi.

Farmers are having to use the long paddock just to get the stock some extra feed.

Moonie River at the Nindgully Pub and camping for freedom.

Plenty of room for camping and the river is so nice to look at. I hear the meals at the pub are great.

Daggy sign. On the other side of the sign it has Free beer tomorrow.

Silo art work at Thallon.

Hebel Hotel.

Camp kitchen at Lorne Station, Lightning Ridge.

Looking over towards the old shearing shed on the station.

Shows just how much room there is for camping, you can choose powered or unpowered.

Up at the powered sites and the permanents.


Showing the camp fire area.

Hudson’s Prickly pear, dont ever touch it, Don found out the hard way, took pliers to get them out of his foot, the crocks went in the bin.


Murray River

Headed for the Murray river to camp, we were on the NSW side and no camping spots, spoke to a chap and he suggested a couple of areas if we could fit in, on inspection they were not suitable so headed to the Collendine State Forest, well it was an interesting track, be very mucky if wet, we could see the skidding from others trying to drive in the wet. The skies opened up overnight and we thought Oh no! but lucky we went out a different road that we’d checked before night as the skies were not looking good.
