The wind was not as severe as the previous day, I fact, it was still when we woke in the morning.  “He” took pictures of the Lake in the still conditions and we spent the morning sitting in the sun enjoying the company of our companions.

18 September 2017 – Sofala to Wallerawang (Lake Wallace) NSW

17 September 2017 – Hill End to Sofala NSW

Happy that we had explored Hill End to our satisfaction, we decided to relocate some 50k’s east to a free camp on the Turon River near Sofala.  We had stayed at this site in the past.

16 September 2017 – Hill End NSW

We decided to book into a mine tour and that required us to attend a local store to make the booking.  Whilst in the township, we paid a visit to the local historian and were able to gain a little information about “Her” relatives.

Today was a little warmer than the previous days and we had planned to try our luck at gold prospecting.

14 September 2017 – Vittoria (Macquarie Woods) to Hill End NSW

It was cold when the alarm sounded at 7:00am and a quick look out of the door revealed that it was snowing.

Snowing is not really the right term (sleet would be a better description) but we did have snow laying on the ground at the point where it had hit the side of . . . → Read More: 14 September 2017 – Vittoria (Macquarie Woods) to Hill End NSW

13 September 2017 – Sydney to Vittoria (Macquarie Woods) NSW
