Coolah Tops National Park

At the top of the hill the farmland gives way to the trees of the national park.  The soil is rich and the rainfall high so the trees are tall.  There is good quality dirt road through the park.


  1. Did it smell good?
    It looks like it smelled (smelt?) good.

    1. It smelt crisp and clean ... can't remember any other distinctive aroma.

  2. Love this. It exudes such a sense of calm. A meandering road in no hurry to anywhere but through the tall trees...

    1. Yeh it is a no hurry kind of place. Even over a glorious warm Easter long weekend not a bothersome amount of traffic.

  3. my favourite type of road....

    1. A follower of my blog for a while you already not this is my type of road :-)

  4. Another lovely place to visit.

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.

Blue Wren

Having finished the circuit at the zoo we settled down for a nice lunch at the cafe. This chirpy little blue wren came close to our table while his brown wife Jenny jumped playfully on the grass. Nesting swallows swooped in an out of the rafters.
Musing:The Blue Wrens and the Butcher Bird by Judith Wright
"Sweet and small the blue wren
whistles to his gentle hen,
"The creek is full, the day is gold,
the tale of love is never told.
Fear not, my love, nor fly away,
for safe, safe in the blackthorn-tree
we shall build our nest today.
Trust to me, oh trust to me."

Cobwebs they gather and dry grass,
greeting each other as they pass
up to the nest and down again,
the blue wren and the brown wren.
They seek and carry far and near,
down the bank and up the hill,
until that crystal note they hear
that strikes them dumb and holds them still.

Great glorious passion of a voice--
sure all that hear it must rejoice.
But in the thorn-bush silent hide
the nest-builders side by side.

Royal Hotel - Ganman

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