Wednesday 1st October
Spending another day here, just relaxing. will head south tomorrow.
Thursday 2nd October
Heading down the Mitchell highway today to the N.S.W. border town of Barringun, about 200 km for the day. Didn't stop in Cunnamulla except to refuel the bus. We got to Barringun at 12.20pm,(which is on the N.S.W. side of the border) So - another state to explore. There isn't much at the border between Qld and N.S.W. to let a person know they have crossed it. Barringun has a truck/stop-caravan park and a pretty run down hotel.

We spent the night opposite the hotel parking in a slip lane that had plenty of room.

Bourke. Heaps of them all
the way to Cobar
Moving on down the highway toward Bourke, ( the back of Bourke, you know the one) and on the way the roadside and farm land and scrub has heaps of goats of all colours and sizes, I expect that they are feral goats as there are too many of them to be farmed., although there may be some of them that are stock animals.
We went all the way to Cobar today passing by Bourke except to refuel Dilligaf and stopped at a butcher to get extra meat and bones for the dogs.
Arrived in Cobar and stopped at a truck stop rest area on the intersection to where we are heading tomorrow.

Had been here for a couple of hours when a council worker told us about the free camp at the town reservoir. We moved to there and it was worth it as it is very pretty and the dogs managed to get a swim in the clear cool water. We had a very nice evening.
The day was a bit tiring as we travelled a bit further than usual, clocking up about 300km for the day, about twice the usual, but all is good.
I visited the information centre before we moved to our final camp site and took a photo of the beautiful building, which also houses the museum.
