As we near Narrabri, mountains seem to pop out of the acres and acres of farmland. The cotton fields are empty (apparently they are planted in September) and the canola is coming into flower.
We are surprised to find Narrabri is quite a large town. I guess I was expecting it to be about the size of Gilgandra (4,000 people) but it has around 12,000. This is another town on the Newell Highway which I passed through back in the old days and didn't notice. It's on the Namoi River.
We are going to spend a day or so here.
