31 May 2015 – Parkes to Cowra NSW

It had rained overnight and several of our group were up early to pack up in anticipation of further rain.  The rain did not come and we were able to pack up in the dry.

In convoy formation we departed Parkes just after 9:00am and headed to the nearby township of Eugowra.

Eugowra is famous for its murals and the locals were amazed at the sight of 8 caravans and a motorhome lined up in the main street with the occupants taking photographs of the murals.  We also visited a local café, the Lady Bushranger, and enjoyed morning tea.

Whilst in Eugowra some of our members witnessed the unveiling of a plaque that commemorated the 200th anniversary of the arrival in the area of the explorer, George William Evans.   On 1 June 1815 in Eugowra, George William Evans and his group marked a tree at the junction of Lachlan River and a creek that they named Byrnes Creek.  This was the furthest west any Europeans had travelled into the country at that time.

After leaving Eugowra, we travelled straight through to Cowra and our overnight stop at the Cowra Holiday Park.  It took us almost 30 minutes to check-in before we were able to proceed to our site.

After finishing our setup, we had a quiet afternoon.  Our group planned to have pizza for tea and after organizing what each couple wanted, an order was placed at the local Eagle Boys pizza outlet.  “He” and a friend collected ten pizzas with every couple indicating that they enjoyed what they had ordered.

We spent a couple of hours in the camp kitchen enjoying a nice fire.  Except for the smoke, the fire was appreciated by all.
