Destination is The Great Ocean Road
Well, we are on the road again heading down the Newell Highway and are currently at Coonabarabran. After a short stop off over the coming weekend in the small town of Coolamon, near Wagga in NSW, for the 2018 Hayes reunion (Leanne and siblings plus significant others) we will be heading for Geelong and the start of the road trip along the Victorian coastline. We stopped overnight at Inglewood about 250 km west of Brisbane along the Cunningham Hwy. This was a good free camping spot beside the local creek, lots of green grass for a change after our recent trip out to Birdsville.
This morning we left early, lost an hour at the NSW border due to day light saving but we are assured to get it back when we return home in a few weeks. The trouble with this daylight saving thing is that we will never know what we missed, if anything. On the way to Coonabarabran the rain came down, it seemed to be rather patchy some areas getting it and others missing out. The region will need more, it is very dry. The wheat crop is in and seems to be progressing ok. As we settled into the camp ground at Coonabarabran the storm clouds were again gathering, they didn’t come to much.
We are off tomorrow heading for Goobang NP midway between Dubbo and Parkes, near Peak Hill
