Away from the townships now, heading for the plains and the remote regions of South Australia – we’re into big sky country again, stobie poles to the horizon (telegraph poles made of steel and concrete if you’re not from South Australia) with so many tiny joys on the way:
12th May, 2022:
Now for the FlindersRanges(Via Peterborough, Orroroo, Carrieton, Cradock, and Hawker) heading first to Rawnsley Park Station…and ah the staggeringly beautiful silhouettes of the jagged mountains, as the road climbs and curls its way up and between the mountains.
A couple of nights at Rawnsley ParkStation, together with a surprising meal at a restaurant one wouldn’t be surprised to find in downtown Sydney:
Now we’re heading for a special treat, meeting friends from home for a couple of days in a remote campsite at Willow SpringsStation – with a never-ending fire, good food, much good wine and where the dogs can rove as freely as we can.
So, next we’re off north towards the Birdsville Track, almost the most renowned outback track of them all. what to expect????
One thought on “Flinders Ranges”
As I write to you the wind whistles outside & the rain is pelting down on the tin roof, Marty said a storm is coming as he came inside. Most unusual – I have forgotten what usual is! After a few sunny warm days, we are expecting snow on Barrington Tops too. I have been busy cleaning after Justin left to holiday up north & Emma & Darcy came for him to say goodbye before he heads off OS for an indefinite time traveling & hopefully working in the UK & Europe. He is 23 in June & is a delight. Toby played soccer all Sunday in Tamworth & is playing for a Newcastle rep team. All our local games have been washed out & even last weekend with glorious sunshine the ground was too muddy in Gresford. My lovely cousin, Howard, & his wife, Hilary, are coming for 3 days this Friday hence the good spring clean! The carpets were cleaned today, the first time ever & they smell & look so good, Dungog has a festival promoting the bike rides etc so we shall go over & have lunch at the Tin Shed – Meg’s Kitchen doesn’t open at the weekend. So glad the election is over & am enjoying the new faces. Let’s hope they curb their spending & we don’t have a recession. Life out there looks good so hope the Birdsville Track is now open & enjoy!
