Walgett

Left Goodiwindi after a short tour around the sights, or should that be sites? Doesn’t really matter. Gunsynd hasn’t changed since last seen on the memorial near the old Border Bridge, hasn’t won any more races either. Leanne availed herself of discounts at Goondiwindi Cotton Co before we headed off down the road to Moree and then onto Collarenabri on the Gwydir River. At Collarenabri we chased a flock of ducks into the river before having a milkshake in the local cafe. There is not a lot of commerce on the main street which has seen better days it seems. The drive into Walgett went well passing  great expanses of harvested cotton fields. It is a big night in town tonight and the local bottle shop ,is doing a roaring trade, there should be a few headaches in the morning. We enjoyed some Chinese takeaway and a bottle of red back in the motel. Last night under cover before the first camp out in Bourke tomorrow, after some grave hunting at Bugilbone.
