End of day 1

We are beginning to leave the hills behind and enter the broad wheat and sheep country. By the end of trip we had seen dozens of wheat silos standing sentinal beside railway sidings like the one below. The temperature was still sky high but the clouds were gathering nicely as we rolled into Grenfell to set up camp for the night.


  1. The second photo is so nice - you took the photo out of the car window?
    I really like the colours. There is something about this photo ... intriguing.

  2. Yes, Martina, taken from the car window. Dry landscape, afternoon light and gathering rain clouds I guess have contributed to the colours.

  3. Grenfell - Henry Lawson country.

    We Aussies are an ornery bunch. There is an old NSW cricketer called Geoff Lawson. His nick-name is Henry.

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.
