Day 18 - Coonamble and Coonabarabran

Day 18, the third last day of our holiday, involved a drive from Lightning Ridge, through Walgett, Coonamble and Barradine to Coonabarabran. Emu somewhere south of Lightning Ridge Coonamble I think they forgot an air conditioner Driving east towards Barradine Neilson Park, Coonabarabran

Day 17 - Lightning Ridge

Day 17 was a ‘recovery day’ spent in and around Lightning Ridge after our 700km drive to get here. It’s an interesting place - eclectic; dusty but attractive; reputedly one of the poorest towns in NSW; beautiful and clear light. It seems that places with such clear light attract many artists. It is the same with Broken Hill. Plenty of tragedy and hard, physical work and plenty of artists as well.
