Our first stop this morning was a sleepy little place called Amby. The only sign of possible life was the barking of an unseen dog.
Amby is of significant cultural heritage for the Aboriginal Scar Trees. There's supposed to be marks in the trees, which are uprooted in a pebble and brick display but the sight of them escaped us.
We continued west to Mitchell. There we dipped into beautiful artesian water at the spa. My hair is so soft after my shower - no conditioner required.
We took out a day pass ( no extra cost) and walked up the road in search of a cafe that had been recommended.
This cafe/bakery is so popular that it's been known to have a que of people waiting to get in at opening time.
Our hot pies were delicious with a light flaky pastry. The huge lamington disappeared easily too. It was so light.
A walk around the town (5 pubs and not many more houses - although to be fair, not all pubs were open) and we were ready to take the waters again. Even with the light breeze 39c water is very warm to stay in.
The town, although not thriving is well cared for and there are mosaics embedded in the footpath.
Our camp tonight is a bush camp just out of town at Neil Turner Weir. We've enjoyed an evening around the campfire with Rolanda and Mark and our new friends we met at the Artisian Spa, George and Judith. George builds a great fire.
