Saturday 30th November 2019

The last day of Spring and last day of November, yep it is 26 days to Christmas O'no not Christmas...


We went for a drive around the hills in the Cowra area good roads and worth a look..


The area around the gardens look how green it is...


Back in the main street of Cowra looking down the hill...


Same area in the street, we went to Woolworth's and filled the car with fuel Unleaded91 cost 1.499lt here...

Friday 29th November 2019

Almost the end of the month and still in Cowra, been good for us, it is not the place to live but I do like it...


I have been asked how do you weigh the caravan, well they make a set of scale that weigh the tow ball weight of the caravan, as in the picture above. When you hook the caravan to the tow bar of the car it has weight pushing down, the max in our case is 200kg, as you can see in the picture ours is 97 maybe 98kg well under the 200kg... Ian and Pauline own the scales...


I am not a McDonald's fan but did like the play ground in Cowra...


It has been a long time, grass this green it is in the council park...


Same park the playground, the kids would love this...


All next to the Visitor Information the garden around the Information are first class...


Around the corner Bunnings it is built in a old hardware shop...


Nice building not sure how old it is but sure been there a few years...


All that green grass needs water and it comes from here "Lachlan River" at the end of the main street in Cowra...

 

We had a really hot day in Cowra 38c today almost as hot as White Cliffs... We may need to pack up the caravan awning in the morning they say very strong wind tomorrow will just wait and see...

Think we will all move off Monday to the South just to hot and a lot of wind here...

Hope you like today's pictures and have a great weekend....

 

Have fun...

 

 

 

 

Thursday 28th November 2019

In Cowra NSW and today I had a look and try to answer some question about Cowra....

I have been asked about the railway bridge that I showed a few days ago, I found this on the net from the air, showing the bridge (it could with a coat of paint)...


Another place we went today with Ian and Pauline Coles, Cowra...


Not so good I showed this picture the other day on the left in the background caravans at the Cowra Dump point (where you empty a caravan toilet) I went there today. Shocking it's dirty and need to be rebuilt, not good at all... They have a great looking town and they fail on something so basic...

Tomorrow they are saying 37c wow that be hot in the caravan so we may go down to the river and dip my toe in the water.

Remember this picture a few day ago of the river 37c it is looking good.

I did some repairs on the awning vinyl came apart in the big wind of last tuesday...

Ian has scales to check the tow ball weight of the caravan, this morning we put them under our old caravan (we have a max of 200kg) well we came up 96kg, I often wonder how close we were to the limit. We are well under weight...

 

You all have fun...

 

 

 

 

Wednesday 27th November 2019

What a shocking day, wind and big wind it started to rip our awning so we took it down and put it in the back of the car I put it back up tonight or tomorrow...


Yes we went to the coffee house cafe today a very busy place even on such a windy day...


Another place we went today was the information centre in Cowra... it was worth a visit with local movies to watch...


Rose garden near the Coffee Shop a heap of rose's here..


The main railway bridge over the Lachlan River that is a very long bridge all steel..


Under the new road bridge in Cowra they call it art, I do like some of it...


Back in town the main street and the big Target on the left. The main street is on a good size hill...

 

From Bernie in Howlong...

G'day Rex and Carol. I've been keeping a daily tab on your travel updates and love your town stories. Certainly a lot of history in the western NSW towns. I have in the past years when I lived in Epping, Sydney passed through all those small localities. It was t to find another "backroad" from Sydney on my travels to White CLiffs. I didn't care if it was 100 km further, as long as I could see some new scenery. I again mention how marvelous the old buildings have been "refreshed" to as near new. Certainly much town pride in those small towns. I been to Corowa a lot of times. No doubt you will find the WW2 Museum and Japanese Gardens interesting.. here is a easy 30 Kilometres Drive from Cowra to Wyangala Dam . Wyangala at present is low at 16% capacity but the 2 pics here are in 2005 with the lake at 4.5%. There are spectacular views from Elliots Lookout that overlooks the dam from an up high aspect. Wyangala village is cute. It is a continua nation of the workman's huts housing those who built the dam.

Bernie that's a long time ago... But still a good fish...

A couple of photos of the low dam and one of me with my biggest 12 lb trout ever I caught below the dam spillway. Cheers for now. 

Thanks bernie I think it's worth a drive before we leave this area....

 

You all have fun, we will when the wind drops and the dust goes away....

 

 

 

 

 

Monday 25th November 2019

Thursday 21st November 2019

Molong was very hot today but nothing like White Cliffs 44c and Albury 42c that's hot... We went down to the main street in Molong and the supermarket late morning and did a good size shop...

We were talking about saving water in the caravan park and I showed this picture I took in Wellington two weeks ago... I am looking at setting this up at White Cliffs the water out of the washing machine goes into a 200lt drum you then use it to water your garden or maybe a 3m square of lawn, we will look at it next year when we get home...

 

Molong
Journey to Molong and enjoy everything from heritage charm to cellar doors in this rural town in the beautiful Orange region. Stroll down the main street, which is classified by the National Trust, to find grand colonial buildings, galleries and gift shops, such as Jayes Gallery and Café where you can browse local arts and crafts.

The surrounding Orange wine region is acclaimed for its cool climate wines. A good place to start is the award-winning Printhie Wines, just outside Molong, where you can sip wines with a local label. A short drive southeast of Molong is Borenore and the cellar doors of Faisan Estate Wines and Orange Mountain Wines.

Problem today but fixed now, there is a pipe about 6in out of the back of the air conditioner it feeds the very hot air to the outside of the van. We got really hot in the van 39c so I had a look thinking the air conditioner was broken, what I found was a 8" spit in the hot pipe and the heat was being fed back into the caravan and not going outside the caravan. I took the pipe out and cut out the broken bit and repaired it.

All back in order and working the temperature fell from 39c to 31c in one hour and still falling back as I type this...

Apart from that I watched the cricket on television...

 

Well that was our day, and as I type this the sky outside is filling with smoke from the fires 100km's away in the Blue Mountains...

 

Big hello to Muffy my sister in Albury, someone tell her...

 

Have Fun...

 

 

 

Wednesday 20th November 2019

Today we went to Millthorpe around 20km's from Orange, a very old town...

Millthorpe is a town located between Orange and Blayney in New South Wales, Australia in the Blayney Shire. At the 2011 census, Millthorpe had a population of 1,109 people.[1] The town was once a major potato growing area and continues to have extensive agricultural activities. The town was originally called Spring Grove.


The main road into town and it was a very hot day...

Millthorpe is a picturesque, compact and historic village set amidst gently rolling hills. Classified by the National Trust, it has a number of fine historic buildings, as well as cobbled, bluestone-bordered streets, art galleries, gift and antiques shops, a museum, two hotels, restaurants and cafes, a bowling club and motel. Two of the main streets, Victoria (which runs east-west) and Park (north-south), follow the contours of the local topography with a more regularised grid system extending outwards from them. Millthorpe is located 252 km north-west of Sydney and 22 km south of Orange.


On the right the Railway Hotel, in front the Railway Station...

European settlement of the area began when a government stock station was established in 1823. The town is based upon a land grant originally known as Grove Farm which was made out to convict overseer Charles Booth in 1834. Noted explorer Thomas Mitchell twice stayed there during inland expeditions.


There are a lot of very old homes, large homes....

The area developed as a farming centre from 1840 to 1880 with orchards established in the 1860s. Local agriculture received a considerable boost from the arrival of the railway in the 1870s complete with a railway station. A large flour mill was established in 1882. Consequently, in 1884 the town's name was changed from Spring Grove to Millthorpe. Today it is still essentially a service centre to the rich farmlands which surround it.


What a nice old home, I say an old bank and home top place...

Millthorpe's commercial area was extended after the depression of the 1890s and many of its largely brick buildings date from that period. The town's decline after World War I means that it was spared redevelopment and so many of its buildings have survived with very little alteration.

So that's our day in Millthorpe it was a good trip and a really good day... I know I say this a lot but if in the area go visit the town...

You all have fun... If you read Three Dots and have some pictures send them in me via eMail address at the top of the page...

 

You all have fun...

 

 

 

 

Tuesday 19th November 2019

Went for a short local drive in the Molong Area. The word "Molong" means Rock Out Crop... and it is just out of town... This morning was nice and cool but very hot later in the day.


The word "Molong" means Rock Out Crop...


About 10km's out the Dubbo Road you find a shop the shop sells trains, not small trains real trains...


If you like you can buy a full train... As I said 10km's from Molong out the Dubbo Road...


Bernie sent me some pictures taken in White Cliffs during a big "Dust Storm"...


Back of the White Cliffs Hotel you can see the dust...


A nice picture, the front of the Hotel it has a nice look about it....

Sunday 17th November 2019

Today it is all about Orange New South Wales.... Orange is a city in the Central West region of New South Wales, Australia. It is 254 km (158 mi) west of the state capital, Sydney [206 km (128 mi) on a great circle], at an altitude of 862 metres (2,828 ft). Orange had an estimated urban population of 40,493[1] as of June 2018 making the city a significant regional centre. A significant nearby landmark is Mount Canobolas with a peak elevation of 1,395 m (4,577 ft) AHD  and commanding views of the district.

Orange is the birthplace of poets Banjo Paterson and Kenneth Slessor, although Paterson lived in Orange for only a short time as an infant. Walter W. Stone, book publisher (Wentworth Books) and passionate supporter of Australian literature, was also born in Orange. The first Australian Touring Car Championship, known today as V8 Supercar Championship Series, was held at the Gnoo Blas Motor Racing Circuit in 1960.

In 1822 Captain Percy Simpson marched into the Wellington District and established a convict settlement which was called "Blackman's Swamp" after James Blackman; Simpson had employed James Blackman as a guide because he had already accompanied an earlier explorer, John Oxley into that region.

In the late 1820s, the surveyor J. B. Richards worked on a survey of the Macquarie River below Bathurst and also of the road to Wellington. On a plan dated 1829, he indicated a village reserve, in the parish of Orange. Sir Thomas Mitchell named the parish Orange, as he had been an associate of the Prince of Orange in the Peninsular War, when both were aides-de-camp to the Duke of Wellington, whose title was bestowed on the valley to the west by Oxley.

Initial occupation by British graziers began in late 1829, and tiny settlements eventually turned into larger towns as properties came into connection with the road. In 1844, the surveyor Davidson was sent to check on encroachments onto the land reserved for a village, and to advise on the location for a township. His choices were Frederick's Valley, Pretty Plains, or Blackman's Swamp.

Blackman's Swamp was chosen, and it was proclaimed a village and named Orange by Major Thomas Mitchell in 1846 in honour of Prince William of Orange. At nearby Ophir, a significant gold find in Australia was made in 1851, resulting in a sporadic population movement which is known as the Australian gold rush. Additional gold finds in nearby areas led to the establishment of Orange as a central trading centre for the gold.

The growth of Orange continued as the conditions were well suited for agriculture, and in 1860 it was proclaimed a municipality. The railway from Sydney reached Orange in 1877. In 1946, 100 years after it was first being established as a village, Orange was proclaimed as a minor city.

A group of new shops open in Orange on Friday and we had a look today. We had a great day in Orange today and we had lunch there and went shopping at Aldi as well we are now back in Molong and tomorrow is another day....

If you come up this way it is well worth a stop over....

 

You all have fun and Doug it was good to have a chat with you last night I will use the picture...

 

 

 

 

Saturday 16th November 2019

We took a day off today and stayed in the caravan, we made a trip to the Supermarket some 400m away and we did the washing here at the park... It's free to wash here and they have two nice new washing machine's (most caravan parks are $4 to $6 a wash load.) so free really good...

We also cleaned the inside of the caravan park so we are looking good tonight....

Tomorrow we are planning a trip to Orange as a new shopping complex open there yesterday and the lady of the house wants to go shopping... I need to buy a new radiator cap for the car...

So I take some more pictures tomorrow ....

You all have fun...

Sunday 10th November 2019

Molong, we needed to stop some place and have a long break and give us a break from travel I think we found it in Molong...

History
The name Molong comes from the Aboriginal word for 'all rocks'.

William Lee of Kelso is said to have had cattle in the area by 1819. He later held property just north of present Molong, around Larras Lee. In 1826, a military and police outpost was established at Molong, on Governor Darling's orders, as a step in opening up the government stock reserve west of the Macquarie River for settlement. The present village of Molong was officially gazetted in March 1849.In 1845, Copper was discovered at Copper Hill, just north of the town.

The Historical Museum is housed in a former hotel (1856), built by rubble-mason James Mortal, who sold it in 1861 to John Smith of Gamboola. Smith let the building to a series of publicans and it later became the residence and surgery for a series of doctors. The Historical Society acquired it for use as a museum, in 1969, with help from the Molong Shire Council.

..

We are around 30km's West of Orange City a big city worth seeing... and around 420km's North of Albury, Wangaratta area.

 


If it has a problem it be the traffic as we are about 40m from the main road...


The caravan park in Molong a small town...

.. We found a Kangaroo in town..


Looking down the main street of town this is the main CBD of Molong..


Coffee and Bakery in town....

We are setup in part and will finish our setup tomorrow sometime, we are planning a long stay here we went looking for a small town near a city and this place looks good so far...

You all have fun... That's our plan...

 

 

 

 

Saturday 9th November 2019

Still in Wellington tonight but we move on early morning, down South to some place well that is the plan...

This is the Macquarie River about 40m from our caravan it looks quite deep from up here above the river...

I like this in White Cliffs the washing machine drain hose into a 200lt plastic drum that drains outside and add's water to the lawn...


Our van at the park outside, above the river it a nice spot but we move on tomorrow morning...

We will return to Wellington in a year or so it is a nice van park a powered site $26 a night...

Tuesday 5th November 2019

After a wet night in Dubbo at the Caravan Park we went into town and had a look around, Spotlight, Woolworths and then the main street of Dubbo...


The main street in Dubbo and it was really busy today...


Carol was on the camera, Dubbo...


There are some nice old buildings in the main street (seen Myer Dubbo)...


All pictures today are in the main street of Dubbo.


Another nice building in the street...


Just off the main street...

Dubbo is a very busy place it is always full of cars.

The Melbourne Cup been run and won (I did not have a bet, but the other half had one and a win, she was sure happy about that, I did hear Ian had a win as well)...

A big blow to our plans, we did plan to spend two weeks at a small town in NSW, Molong Showgrounds... Some bad news the town is almost out of water and have closed the Showgrounds Caravan Park... So we are back to the computer and need to preplan two weeks of our trip... That pissed me off...

 

A quite afternoon in Dubbo, you all have fun...

As I type this we are having heavy rain in Narromine NSW just up to the North Bourke and other places on the Darling River have had over 60mm of rain that may flood the Darling River.... More on this later from White Cliffs...


This is Vicki place in White Cliffs over 30mm of rain in the last two day... Our 1000lt water tank is over full and be running down the yard...

 

A great day the rain killed off the dust in Narromine I must say I was very happy with that...

While in Sydney Susan and friends went to Bondi Beach and us some odd pictures...


From Bondi...


Ok I am not sure I understand what this is for...


Here another from Bondi Beach (thanks girls hope you are having fun in Sydney)...

It been a hard day living in the caravan most of the day due to rain, tomorrow we move on from Narromine ... Cannot say I love the place wind, dust and then rain maybe it be a nice place at some other time...

Have Fun

 

 

 

Saturday 2nd November 2019

And the big news is it is raining in White Cliffs and I just checked and the BOM saying 4.4mm as at the time of writing Three Dots tonight... A really big thank you to Vicki for letting us know... We had 400lt's left in our 1000lt tank today so far added around 300 lt's making 700lts in the tank... Vicki has a big roof and some big tanks at her place...

Narromine where we are today, we have had wind (up to 60kph) and dust all day long we woke up to dust and we still have dust, remember I washed the car yesterday we it is a mess once again...


All pictures today are the main street of Narromine it is a neat and tidy town...


Had to visit the chemist shop (dust in my eye's ) I had to wash them out..


It's one of those towns where you are required to back in your car...


It is not a bad town has a Cole's Supermarket and a lot of smaller shop...


Glen McGrath comes from Narromine and stands in bronze in the main CBD area..

No rain here, just wind and dust maybe tonight or tomorrow... All good here, we had lunch at the bowls club in town..

 

Tomorrow we will have our Sunday Coffee Cup...

You all have fun...

 

 

 

 

 

Friday 1st November 2019

Well we ended up in Narromine NSW out near the Air Port it about a 4 out 5 if I was asked to rate the caravan park yet it is $30.00 a night. We booked in for two nights but may stay three nights... We drove 140km's today from Nyngan to Narromine...


The Caravan Park has a small Motel as well as the caravan park here in Narromine... This afternoon we went to a Cole's Supermarket in town we will look around tomorrow...


The owner of the caravan park has their own water truck and as you can see it is a big truck the park has a lot of lawn.. That makes life easy...


I read about a new Jayco Van and seen one tonight here at the park it is a 4wd van something's I like but it is very small at 15ft...


One thing I did like in town was a "Car Wash" so the Hyundai got it first big wash in six months... With the lack of water in White Cliffs I did not wash the car...

The car seem to run a bit hot today, towing the van it sat on 102c I give it a big check over in the morning...

Running late tonight so I upload to the Internet you all have fun this weekend...
