To the Dish at Parkes.
G works for the mob that run the place and had to meet with some people - so I went along for a mini-break.
Wandered around a bit.
In true country style, nothing gets thrown away out in the bush!
There are lovely native trees and bushes planted around the site.
This is a rare eucalypt from Western Australia, but I've forgotten it's name.
I went for a walk to Goobang National Park, north of Parkes which is a farly new national park.
Burrabadine peak is perhaps the last raised bit of land going west.
It's a very big, flat country out there.
It was badly burned a couple of years ago, but is regenerating - like this wonderful grass tree (xanthorea)
