Wednesday 21st August

The campsite was great with a lovely inside tv sitting area and open fire last night. We made full use of it as it was a cold evening. After a very cold nights sleep, We’ve even brought warm pjs and bed socks we packed up and headed north again.

We’ve been along the coast and been along the outback so now we’re headed for the mountains.

The first stop as we got closer to the mountain was a lookout point. It was spectacular views all around unfortunately a phone camera can’t do it justice

We stopped for our mid morning cup of tea (god when did I get old) in small town uralla the buildings our all deco very smart. And lunch was in Guyra more 1900 in style. Mike rather fancies staying in one of the Innes that has the fretwork verandas all around.

Final destination for the night Glen Innes. It’s cold and windy and the only campsite we can find with toilets and showers state in there description clothes optional! I didn’t want to stay there.

The town is pretty and has two of the inns that mike likes so we opted to stay in the cheapest one we had to share the bathrooms but they were clean enough and it had a sitting room that we had to ourselves.

We spent the afternoon watching the sun set from the veranda and then watched a film on tv before bed.

Tuesday 20th August

We drove to Tamworth today famous for its country music festival. Lots of big stars have played here including Kieth urban if you haven’t heard of him you may of heard of his spouse someone called Nicole Kidman. It’s a city based at the foot of the mountains and has a really nice feel about the place. With lots of statues around proud of its country music vibe. It also is the home of the country music hall of fame.

On the way to Tamworth we passed through little towns called Coolah where I brought a cardigan from a charity shop for $2 and quirindi for a coffee. The weather is still nice day time but again it’s going to be a chilly night.
