Welcome to Molong, a small town 30 kms from the city of Orange with a population of around 2,000 people. We are wayfaring through Cabonne Country, a food basket area where grain and sheep are high on the list but there is much more. We loved this trip, through rich agricultural land and historic towns. I hope you enjoy it too.
Is that a Coolibah tree beside the abandoned house? Every Australian knows about Coolibah trees because the bush ballad Waltzing Matilda is nigh on our unoffical national anthem but most of us live nowhere near the inland where they grow. Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong, Under the shade of a Coolibah tree, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me. Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me.
