I had just walked in the door after a game of hockey when Brian casually handed me a newspaper advertisement: “For Lease: Boorara Station – 285,000 acres”.
Two hundred and eighty five THOUSAND acres
Two hundred and eighty five thousand OUTBACK acres
So Mob, want to come on an adventure?
We’ve been out to the opal fields again, catching up with Jenni at the Australian Opal Centre, learning a little more about mining at the Sheepyard, watching the Ugly Man Competition at Grawin and enjoying a few rums with our friends at Glengarry. But the opal fields are 5-6 hours from home and when you’ve been travelling in a rough and rattly farm ute you would kill for a hot spa at the end of the day. Thankfully Lightning Ridge can oblige.
