05-Feb-2007 -- We had a ball camping on mount Panorama and driving around the race track. It was my first time in Bathurst and we made the most of it. I also made sure I went to have a look at the cottage where Ben Chifley, former Prime minister of Australia lived. Just a humble abode for a humble man.
On the way to our confluence, we stopped at Orange for a bit of shopping and kept going. Heading north, we found a smaller dirt road that took us only about 400 metres from the place. Decidedly I've had a streak of good fortune recently finding all these roads that save me a lot of walking. Once again the landscape was parched. A couple of sheep were grazing on the rare clumps of grass they could find here and there and scampered off when they saw me coming.
I found the confluence point just before getting to the hill I was walking towards. It's not a bad scenery in that area, despite the drought. Another one in the bag and I'll have a go at 32S 149E tomorrow
