Friday 8th July
Last night was very cold (-0.6 degrees at 4.30am brrr brrr) and it stayed cold all day, can't wait to find some warm weather.
We travelled from Gol Gol to Hay about 300klms and arrived about 1pm. Booking into the Hay Big 4 caravan park - 28$ per night (Big 4 dic 2.80 - $25.20). Nice little park.
Went to check out the Shear Outbank Centre - a museum about the shearing industry of the area. Saw a sheep being sheared in the shearing shed.
The Hay Shire has the distinction of being one of the flattest sections of land in the world with a difference in elevation of only 17 metres between the highest and lowest points and is located on the vertally treeless Hay Plains and is on the Murrumbidgee River, part of the Murray-Darling river system.
Hay is generally regarded as one of the best wool growing merino regions in Australia.
