This went for miles, it would be bigger than Latrobe Valley
Geo: -31.0905, 150.929

Left Belmont at 9am, heading for Scone in the Hunter Valley. Could not believe how dry it was.

At Branxton all different second hand cars and utes, about 20, lined up in front of each other, including an old Morrie for sale.

Passing through Singleton Heights the same, another lot of cars for sale. No markets which I would be interested in, just cars.

After passing through Singleton we saw huge pits that are being mined for Black Coal. We had seen a number of carts hauled by trains heading for Newcastle

Ravens wood underground mine, bigger than the Latrobe Valley. Bayswater Power Station.

Had lunch in Scone, the horse capital of Australia, then after a half hour break, decided to move on to Tamworth, only 129km to go,. Would have been excellent to have made it to Brisbane, to see Ed, Holly, Max and Noah, unfortunately not enough time.

Some really flash Stud Parks, owned by the Emirates which was most of Murrurundi. Horses where I came from never had what these guys have. Pottery troughs, special shaded areas, the place neat as a pin. I would not mind coming back as a horse, if The Emirates owned me.

Cars, Utes and Boats on the side of the road in three towns we passed through
this the place where James did slate? Mick not sure.

Arrived in Tamworth, staying at the Paradise Tourist Park, lucky to get a spot and it is on a corner, cement slab and just across the road from the amenities. Might see how we go, lots to see, so may stay three days.
