Back on the mainland – Part 7

The Stone the Crows festival was now just one day away. We were allocated a 7:30 entrance slot, so we wanted to be close the night before for an early start on the day. We decided to stay at Oura Beach. The campsite was very busy but we managed to get a good spot.

We had a bit of a surprise when a herd of cattle was driven into the campsite. Apparently the council had asked the driver to get the cattle in to clean up the area.

We were close to Wagga Wagga and were close to the flightpath. My star photography ended up with the streak of the airplane lights.

We left early in the morning, it was just getting light. We got to the Stone the Crows festival to join the queue.

We stayed at the festival the full seven days and had a great time. The performers were fabulous. We especially enjoyed the String Family and the Bush Poet/Comedy duo Mel & Susie. We met up with friends and made new ones. We were busy with all sorts of activities. I didn’t take any photos. This was the first such festival we have attended as we don’t enjoy crowds but this festival afforded us the opportunity to camp up over the Easter break when roads and camping areas can be a nightmare for travellers. The bonus was that it was very enjoyable.
