Warrumbungles - Day 48

Packed up and drove past Siding Springs Observatory, as well as White Gum Lookout with great views of the Mountains we had been admiring for the last few days. 

One of the rock formations just as you leave Mt Kaputar National Park

We found this amazing place along Killarney Gap Road, called Glacial Rocks. Along Rocky Creek are the most fabulous rock formations left from glacial activity. There was a free camp, but it was the wrong time of day for us to stop.

Through Coonabarabran, then Narrabri, then Inverell. We had been driving most of the day, and Darryl had initially wanted to get to Girraween, but I was pretty tired so suggested a camping spot just out of Inverell, called Joseph Willis Park. There were some locals there as we arrived but they soon disappeared. I had heard that you could find sapphires in the river so Darryl headed out to a sandbank to look. A few young guys turned up in a couple of cars to fish. We had a quiet night, and I slept well but Darryl didn't.
