Shire of Bland


We are going to go south of the main route today, but we've gotta go through more wheat and sheep country first. It's wide, getting flatter and monotonous ... aptly named I think.

  1. Possibly an unfortunate name. I like the acknowledgement of "country".

  2. Ha!
    I remember seeing that sign!
    Is West Wyalong around there?
    I usually find something charming about most country towns but it was difficult with WW - it just didn't have a good feel.

  3. Yes WW is in the Shire of Bland. I didn't mind WW ... they have a Royal Hotel :-)

  4. Hello. Now I discover you have 2 wonderful blogs. I will have to follow both. I think I will enjoy your road trip. My wife and I did a really good one in October - we spent 8 days retracing old Route 66 from Tulsa to Santa Fe. to see too many photos link to: http://tulsagentleman.blogspot.com/2009/10/route-66-roadtrip-tulsa-to-santa-fe.html

  5. That is so funky. Reminds me of certain parts of the Midwest, where the only thing you see is wheatfields for miles and miles.

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.
