Botanical Gardens

With all the visitors I am not getting much Wayfaring done at the moment so will explore a little more of Sydney before moving onto new places.

The Botanical Gardens have a spectacular location by the sparkling habour, right where the great city of Sydney started.

Musing:
From Flower Poem by A.D. Hope
"Not this cut flower but the entire plant
Achieves its miracle from soil and wind,
Rooted in dung, dirt,dead men's bones; the scent
And glory not in themselves an end; the end:
Fresh seeding in some other dirty mind,
The ache of its mysterious event"

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.

Clare exploring

We found a little time to go on a drive to see the local towns  This wonderful old squatters mansion is outside Mintaro.

I wanted to visit this area to see the Grampian mountains.  We had so little time as by now we were hitting out deadline,  I must visit here again.
