We started out going north then out west towards Narrabri.
We passed a bat colony which had taken up residence in the park in Singleton. They have completely destroyed the pretty little park, and it is closed. So sad.
Many of the lovely old trees are dying but bats are a protected species, so nothing can be done until they choose to move on, which may be never.
After an overnight stop in Narrabri we headed to Lightning Ridge via Wee Waa and Burren Junction.
|Artesian Baths 10km East of Burren Junction|
|Nest made by Weaver Ants beside the road near Lightning Ridge|
|A castle made of rocks and bottles. Even a garden gnome for a gargoyle|
|Several buildings made of bottles - this one was a museum. Lovely stained glass windows too|
|The walk in mine. Note the couture hard hat!|
|Down, down, down to the bowels of the earth|
|A cactus nursery|
Leaving Lightning Ridge we headed for Cunnamulla in Western Queensland.
|The Hebel Pub. Not much more than that and the General Store in Hebel.|
The roads were getting pretty isolated by this time with a bit of dirt as well.
|These guys make a mess of the car if you hit one|
|The Wallam River at Bollon|
Our next stop was Cunnamulla, but I'll leave that until the next post.
Til next time, enjoy the sunshine.
