Day 47 – to Lyndhurst via Bathurst

Tuesday May 7th, 2019

Today we travelled about 120 kms. We planned on going further, but spent too long in Bathurst. There was a nice cafe at the Visitor Centre and Stephen took a walk afterwards to a museum, whilst I processed some photos I took on a walk this morning. I made a little slideshow.

 

We had one more little stop along the way, then decided to stay here at Lyndhurst. They offer free camping at what they call a Primitive Camping Ground. There is a toilet, just a portaloo at the moment, but new ones under construction, a new BBQ area and rather nice playground. I had a go on the swing.

There is potable water, apparently lovely water from a spring, and a dump point, which doesn’t need a photo, of course. All they ask is for a donation and there is a little lock box near the entry.

We’ve been travelling on the Great Western Highway, but later today it changed to the Mid Western Highway.
