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.
The Tors, are on the highway heading west into Dunedoo.
Magpies keeping watch over me
Everyone is looking for shade 😃

“Moreton Bay” Gate entry
Them’s the kinda roads we like
We stopped for lunch at the Cassillis 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).
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!)
With camp set up we wandered down to the weir from the campsite.
The bird life started to come out as the sun started to dip down
It was peaceful until the locals came out.
Noisy locals drinking at the river.
Noisy locals at the watering hole.
We even got a bit of colour at sunset
