Following the farmer’s instructions, we wound hither and thither across a mostly smooth, albeit bulldust slippery track. We engaged 4WD for some added stability. This kind of driving, enough to be interesting without distracting you too much from the surrounding country doesn’t get old, for either of us. Trying to identify birds through the windscreen, […]
It was my birthday, and I was in the mood for finding somewhere new, and in low range. A few hours south of Sydney, or a stone’s throw from Canberra; Brindabella National Park looms, ready for the explorer and escapist alike.
