|Lupins gone wild|
We saw lots of rabbits. On a turnoff was the remains of "New-Chums" mine with some equipment. We had lunch, fighting off the millions of flies, then Darryl went for a walk up the hill to look at the mining relics.
A really interesting lookout was Black Perry, which is a stone formation which is really rare.
We didn't drive down the road to Talbingo, but it looks like a lovely place beside the Reservoir, and I would love to visit there someday. We stopped in Tumut to shop and get information before driving the 20km or so to Adelong. It had been our intention to try a free camping spot, but the Caravan park was only $20 for the night, and was really lovely around the back under the Plane Trees overlooking Adelong Creek. We went for a little walk around town.
