On the way to Walcha – a 5-6 hour drive – with endless, quite peaceful rural scenes.
Setting up camp.
A drink after our tents were pitched.
Walking 2km to the RSL for dinner.
Site visit to Oxley Wild Rivers National Park, 30 minutes from Walcha and slowly feel engulfed by the enormity and serenity of the place.
While there, we saw some trees hugging.
My shoes felt right at home amongst the leaf litter.
Waking up with frost on our tent – one of the most hardest things to do.
The road less travelled for two reasons:
- The National Parks and Wildlife Services (NPWS) provides barriers and fences as a preventative means of litigation. Anyone who goes beyond is therefore responsible for themselves, i.e. in the case of an incident, if your found beyond a fence, the NPWS are no longer liable.
- It’s rather dangerous, especially with a heavy camera bag and a tripod whilst wearing inappropriate shoes.
We were the only few that actually came near the water.
We all have to take risks every so often.
Breakfast at the RSL … with some beans. We actually had a big breakfast every morning.
Down the main street of Walcha.
On the bus from our last visit to the site.
A slight detour to Apsley Falls (part of Oxley Wild Rivers National Park) for lunch.
On the bus heading home.
Thats a quick run down of how the trip went. I should really post up some panoramas I took of the place and maybe some social ones if your lucky. I will however, post some stills I got developed today soon – I like them more than I like the ones I posted above and ones from the other day.
Now here are some tracks that got quite a bit of play over the four days.
Tegan & Sara have announced their tour for the end of the year – I’m excited.
