We set off from the high rises and golden beaches on the Gold Coast and head off up through the hinterland to Boonah. From there we cross the Great Dividing Range to Tamworth, the country music capital of Australia.
As we get into the outback we will have a rest day at historic mining town, Cobar. We will take time to have a cold beer in historic Great Western Motel which boasts Australia’s longest pub verandah at 100 metres.
From here we go to Broken Hill. This artificial oasis in the vast arid lands of Western NSW was created to serve the mine workers in the silver-lead-zinc mines. It is also the home of “Brushmen of the Bush”, a group of artists that includes Pro Hart and Jack Absalom. Also, aboriginal arts and crafts. Then on through the flat arid land down to Port Augusta where the outback meets the sea.
