Big country


We went into Parkes to pick up some petrol.   I think of Parkes as being where the big wheat, big sheep, big sky country begins.

Our next port of call was to be Forbes.  I settled on this diversion to our route because I had found out that we missed a Royal Hotel last time we passed through, and what better reason is there to visit a town?

  1. It sounds like you're in Montana, it's all of those things you describe. I would hate to think you would miss one of the Royals. Maybe a book of Royals?

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.
