New England Tablelands
When friends arrived in from Cervantes and Derby, it was time to hit the road to the New England Tablelands and the TCMF2017 (Tamworth Country Music Festival).
As we made our way to Tamworth we stopped off at Dangars and Uralla. It turns out Fred (one of the friends from Derby) has relations in the Uralla cemetery, so we set off to discover his past.
Sadly, Dangars Falls was completely dry, even after large falls in the last 2 days in the area. So as the night set in, out came the guitar and some good old fashion camp fire singing. Great Night and a great warm up to the next week spent in Tamworth.
Next morning it was off to Gostwyck Chapel to see the beautiful church.
Arriving in Tamworth, it was time to catchup with many friends with a BBQ at the Paradise Caravan Park before taking in the music and events over the 10 days of the festival. As there is quite a few photos rom our time there, I have created a gallery TCMF2017.
With the TCMF over, it was time to head back along the Great Dividing Road towards Brisbane. First stop being Point Lookout NSW.
It was decided to camp at Cloud Creek where we satin the creek to wash off the days dust. Later that night it was out with the guitar and I was able to spot light eels in the creek.
The next day we decided to head for Brisbane, but not without sticking to the back roads. Lunch was in Nimbin.
