Here we are at Clandulla (population 350) and our own bush block Whistler's Rest (below).  

I will take you exploring some of the towns in the district next but in the meanwhile, if you want to know what Clandulla is like please follow the story over at my blog Whistler's Rest.  I am showing a map of the town today.


  1. Ooo that looks way too lovely to scrub out.

    What did they blot out on the sign?

  2. Clandulla used to belong to the Rhylstone-Kandos council which has been merged into the Mid-Western region managed out of Mudgee. I suspect the sign said something about the old council as I notice all of the ones in the district have the bottom bit covered over.

    There are still council offices in Rhylstone a sort of branch I guess.

  3. It looks all fresh and clean green.

  4. Of course it doesn't have the h ... but my fingers invariably type it anyway.

  5. Joan. I can't find an email address on your blog so I will use this space. I have just discovered how to put Tab pages onto my blog but it says you can put ten on. However, I have got to number six and it won't show as a tab even though it is on the list of pages in the editing section. Do You know what I have to do to make the tabs smaller so all ten can show?

  6. ooo ... how exciting! I wait with bated patience ...

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.

Royal Hotel - Ganman

And I wrap up this trip with the Royal Hotel at Ganman.

A stark white forest

Actually the poem says "The stark white ring-barked forests, all tragic to the moon" but this white snow gum forest is not ring-barked, nor is it their normal healthy white ... this is the result of the bushfires that swept through the region in 2003. They are reshooting from the base and will recover but it will be a slow process.

At this altitude snow gums grow low and are usually twisted into fantastic shapes. The stuff of many awesome photographs, typically in the snow.
From The Snow Gum by Douglas Stewart
"It is the snow-gum silently,
In noon’s blue and the silvery
Flowering of light on snow.
Performing its slow miracle
Where upon drift and icicle
Perfect lies its shadow."
