We have found our spot for the night at Gilgandra by the banks of the Castlereagh River. The Newell Highway also passes through this town. When we lived in Canberra 30 years ago we used to drive the Newell up to family in Queensland and wizz through these towns with barely a blink. I remember nothing of them, just rivers and bridges and lots of flat land in between.
But these days we do things differently, we are not going from A to B. We are wayfaring.
We will stay for a day and two and see what there is to see.
