Our Four-wheel Drive trip

Our Four-wheel Drive trip

Warrumbungle National Park
Warrumbungle National Park

We went to the Warrumbungle National Park NSW.   We went in my Jackeroo 4WD.It was just after the big floods and we tried to camp at Turon Gates but the river was flooded so we camped on the riverbank with nice green grass just up stream from Sofala, instead.   We had a big campfire the first night and sat talking until late that night, the wattle was in bloom and the fragrance was beautiful. The next day whilst  the boys went fishing in the river and never got a bite, I picked daisies, although daisy chains made me feel nice the boys said I looked silly.   That night it got very cold although the next day the sun came out so we went for a walk to the top of the highest hill, it was a good day out. When we started walking back to our camp we saw a big mob of horses galloping through the paddocks, there was a beautiful black stallion with them.   Then we had another cold night so we decided to move on to the Warrumbungles. We arrived at one pm, in the afternoon and set up camp then we had a look around the area. Later in the evening, a mob of wallabies came into camp. They were about one metre tall and some had beautiful joeys, they were tame and let the boys hand feed them.   The next, day we went for a walk up to the Breadknife, on the way up we stopped for a picnic and the boys fed the currawongs with breadcrumbs. We looked at the breadknife and wondered how the tree managed to grow way up on the top.   Then we walked farther along the trail to the top lookout and stared in wonder at the view spread out before our eyes and then we walked back to camp. After  walking around all day, we were tired so we retired early that night   The next morning, we went driving around the park on approved roads and trails only. We went to Siding Springs Observatory, then to Camp Burbie, back to camp for another night. The Paterson’s-curse was out, and the paddocks were just covered in mauve for miles.   The next day, we went to Borenore Caves for one night. although the last kilometre of road is gravel it is in good condition. There are two main caves, the creek runs though one, and the other is just above it, although they are easy to explore with only a dozen or so steps in the caves, you still need a torch, and the time,.   You can walk into one cave, out through the back, and come back through the other to make a round trip and you cannot get lost. Then, on the way home, we went to my uncle’s place at Molong for a visit.
