Photo: Farming land, near Oberon.

Oberon is king of the fairies on Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Nights Dream". The Oberon we visited on our first wayfaring adventure is a town west of the Blue Mountains and though it's midsummer the weather was very cool. Also this photo taken just a little way out of town is quite fanciful as barns of this style are not at all Australian.

Gundagai exploring

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
