Last week we had a road trip in the school holidays. We set off from home then to Grafton and on to Glen Innes, but we took the Old Glen Innes Road for something different.
The first part of the road is bitumen, lots of old architecture.

It turns to dirt which was bone dry, and there was a high bushfire threat on the day.

It was too hot to stand still,even where there was just hot coals.

Through the convict made tunnel.


A very welcome stop is near the very end of the dirt road on the Glen Innes side, the locals hang around for a look.



After a night in a very average Glen Innes motel, we headed to Inverell, Moree and Lightning Ridge.

Interesting mailbox near Inverell.


Lightning Ridge. Love it!



Went for a dip in the Artesian Pool. Nice and hot, and a beautiful breeze to cool you down when you get out, really love this.


Well camouflaged local near the pool.

Somebody's house, I think.

Cooper's Cottage.


After the dip in the pool we headed off to the Lightning Ridge Bowling Club for what was a tremendous meal and a beer or three!
A day later we bid a sad farewell to the Ridge and headed south to Walgett, Coonamble (where I spent my primary, and early high school days), and then on to Coonabarabran.


Just south of Walgett.


30kms north of Coonamble.


Coming into Coonabarabran, Siding Spring Observatory and the Warrumbungles.



The recent bushfires caused some problems in the National Park, but they are still beautiful.



Cheers all, Rob.

Glad you enjoyed them

I wish there was a "magic camera" that was at your fingertips the instant something happened. Amongst other things we saw bushfires, goannas, road trains, wild pigs, wild pig HUNTERS!(with cargo
) and countless beautiful old houses.

Some more;

Looking back through the tunnel (looking back to Grafton).


Lightning Ridge and the Artesian Baths. Honestly, if they sold counter meals there it would be hard to leave......hot, relaxing, and so therapeutic.

It is a great spot isn't it.
Yes mate, it's a diesel. It's got a nice little "chug", or engine note if you like, at certain engine revs too.
Safe travels, Rob.
