Trilby Station still


Afternoon tea at Trilby Station

Leanne is in good spirits she met some people to talk to today. They were a nice couple who were planning a trip around Australia next year in a van for an indeterminate time, just going.

Today we went for a drive around the property seeing some of the key bits of equipment, holding pens, dams etc. Also some of the historic buildings from earlier ownership periods, including a homestead abandoned in 1965; seemingly not that long ago, with a copy of a Dolly magazine and the boys from Sherbert festooned in the pages lying around one of the rooms, ringer washing machines and boilers and a couple of old Toyota pick up trucks. Somewhat older was an old steam engine used on the property in the late 1800s.

It was all quite green and fresh looking, dams full of water and long grasses. More kangaroos, emus,sheep,goats and this time a rabbit for good measure.

Chilly again tonight but we are at least dry, it is something everyone should give a go. But Leanne is saying ‘why’? At least we are in good humour and looking forward to a new day. Off to Wilcannia tomorrow, route is a bit uncertain due to a road closure along the river.

  1. Very valid question Leanne!! We’ve had a bit of a cold snap here as well, it was 12.6 c today and that was the MAXIMUM temperature!
    You sound like you’re having a great time terrorising the local fauna, just don’t hit any!!
