The river below

Climbing the mountain we can see the River below. I am not sure if it is the Bylong River. Like most of the rivers in this area it's fringed with she-oaks and has busy rocky bits and lazy sandy bits.  They find gold in those rivers.


  1. Great shots! It almost looks like it's in another country compared to the outback rivers I've seen recently. Do you need a license to pan for gold there these days??

    Have a great weekend!!

  2. Could be the upper reaches of the Goulburn ...

  3. Red, you don't need a license to pan for gold, but I am not sure where it can be done. I know there are some areas in state forests where it is Ok to fossick on a personal rather than commercial scale.

    Diane, my hubbie dreams of going panning one day.

    Julie, it also reminded me of the Goulburn River. It is certainly flowing in the same area.

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.
