Mungo Run – Day 1 – Newy to Bogan Weir.

Work is done for 2017 and we’re heading west hoping to get to Mungo National Park after rain foiled our attempt last August.

The usual safety check stop at the rest stop on the expressway out of town.

Dunedoo Tors

The Tors, are on the highway heading west into Dunedoo.

Lunch Stop

Cassilis Rest Stop

We stopped for lunch at the Cassilis rest stop. This is a great spot for a quick stop it overnight stay, with covered tables and chairs and toilets. It’s mainly a truck stop but you can stay overnight down the back away from the trucks (so they can access their much needed rest breaks).

Bogan Weir

Not as Bogan as it’s name 😂 .. A great free camp next to the river about 10 mins out of the town if Peak Hill. There are no toilets, water or power so you do need to be self sufficient. The bugs and mozzies were pretty awful for around an hour and half at sunset. however the mirror like views across the river from our campsite did make them somewhat bearable (once they were gone!)


We even got a bit of colour at sunset



Noisy locals at the watering hole.
