From Chaffey Dam we drove via Nundle to the Hanging Rock lookout. This is a very steep drive up the mountain behind Nundle. I was glad we didn’t come across a logging truck, which bring logs down through this road. The lookout gives spectacular views over the valleys and the mountains surrounding us.
Driving back down the mountain, this time we stopped in Nundle. This is a former gold mining town with many original buildings still standing. Most of the historic buildings are now used for tourist businesses but all the same the town has an original feel about it.
This old building houses a shop selling old wares like brooms, brushes, enamel wares as well as some delicacies.
We took a different drive back, this time on a dirt road that led us along a creek. Once again beautiful scenery. It is difficult to stop along the way to capture some of the scenery. We managed to stop near the river in an area where the valley is a bit wider.
