From Lake Liddell we followed the highway to Singleton – not a great drive with many trucks, two lanes changing to single lanes and in parts some deep ruts in the road from heavy vehicles. I was glad to get off it. We had to cross an other mountain range between Gresford and Dungog. Fantastic scenery – the best scenery we had seen in our trip. I wouldn’t have thought that so soon after our trip to Lake Liddell that I raved about the best scenery, this was surpassed by this road. This time Lesley was ready to take photos. All photos by Lesley out of moving car.
We stopped at Dungog intending to use the dump point at the show grounds. Once again the GPS was not very helpful and a stop at the Information Centre yielded a map and explanations how to find it.
What a lovely place. I enjoyed walking down the street and looking at the old buildings. Nice country town atmosphere. Cars stop at pedestrian crossings already if they think you might like to cross.
The strangest building in town by far is the Picture Theatre – it features a Spanish Façade! Apparently it is the oldest still operating purpose-built cinema in Australia.
The reserve is at the edge of the Barrington River with a small creek that flows behind our campspot. The creek on the right, the river on the left. (Lesley’s photo)
While there isn’t much of a view from the camp site, a short walk brings you into the open with great views. Following some shots I took on a 15 minute walk.
