02-Feb-2007 -- Leaving Gloucester we traveled westward through the North part of Barrington Tops National Park. A sign before getting to the top of the range indicated that it was going to be steep and windy. That was an understatement but what great views from up there when the fog finally dissipated. We were at an altitude of just a tick under 1500 metres according to my GPS. By Australia's standards, it's a pretty big mountain.
The drive down on the East side of the range was fabulous with more magic sceneries. If someone says Australia is a featureless country, they just have to get out from under the rock they live in. This country has a lot to offer in terms of places to see. One also has to marvel at the amount of work that went into building all those roads in relatively remote areas. Anyway, just before getting to the town of Scone I stopped the car and went down to business. I had only a little less than a kilometre to walk on rolling terrain and one nearly dry creek bed. The others had their lunch while I was gone so we pressed on ever so westerly to 32S 150E
