Today we went for a drive out Oberon way with a view to ticking of the remaining towns in that area. On the way you pass through Hampton, a little hamlet on the road to Jenolan Caves. The most prominant part of the town these days are the two wind turbines on the hill.

We don't have a lot of them around these parts so they are really quite exciting.

 For a glimpse of the rest go visit 100 Towns.


  1. I am always fascinated by those wind turbines..

  2. Two would not seem, to my brain, to be sufficient to power much at all. Guess they feed into a grid of some sort. Perhaps they capture the wind coming up the gullies ...

    1. They were at a dead stop on Saturday, though usually they are turning.

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.
