As noted on the previous post we have just returned from a road trip, Sydney>Broken Hill and surrounds> Kinchega National Park, Mungo NP and then on to Mildura, Swan Hill and Ballarat before heading home. Some great sights an SilvertonSilvertonSilverton Station, remains of the tramway Mungo LunetteMungo LunetteMungo NP Mungo Shearing ShedMungo Shearing ShedMungo NP d experiences.

Broken Hill was a surprise, a nice town split by mines and a giant mullock heap.Over 800 fatalities since 1883 and I doubt if this included the men who died an early death from lung diseases and lead poising. The youngest fatality was a 12 year old boy asphyxiated from blasting fumes. The Darling river is not in good health and a lot of very strong views in the area regarding the cotton farmers, a lot of anger. Kinchega and Mungo NP in particular were fascinating, Mungo is a living archaeological site and the cultural tour of the Lunette by an indigenous ranger was fascinating.
