Gra Nomad Wanderings

Wednesday, April 07, 2010


Stayed at ARGADELLS (a working sheep and cattle station) just north of QUORN. There are cottages, camp sites, caravan park with ensuites and bush campsites. There's also a heap of tracks round the property for you to pit your skills against the tough terrain. Really recommend these folk - Malcolm and Judy. Here we are having brekky round the campfire. Our rig in the background.

My 4WD exploits were great. Cautious. Attentive. Mindful. Mindful that we want this Pajero to get us back to Cudmirrah at some stage... maybe late May. It was fun.

Melrose is known for its single track mountain biking.

Had a great meal here at the North Star Hotel. Kerry looked after us here and the food was creative and scrumptious. Thanks Kerry. You could sure have a good party here!!! Really well set up inside too. Linked with the Prairie Hotel at Parachilna.

We met Pip at the bike shop. Check out - looks pretty top class stuff. Fay wouldn't let me stay and play.

When we reached Laura (that's a town), we found Stevens Motors. We negotiated with them and they reckoned they could squeeze us in for our 195,000 km service the following day. The business used to be a Chrysler dealership about 3 generations ago.

About to take Fay here.... for a treat. She loves treats, and she's been so good. Mind you we are still ploughing through the chocolate easter eggs we picked up quite a while ago! They specialise in ice cream which we'll have after we've had a home made meat pie for lunch. Fay doesn't know that either.

This bloke makes saddles, harness etc. If you need something in this line.... here's your place. We're happy with Stevens Motors at the other end of town.
Today we'll head to CRYSTAL BROOK. That's a great town too. We'll stay there a few days we think. Get a bit more cycling in.
