Wilcannia, NSW

Wilcannia has had a bad reputation for some time but meeting up with other nomads we were told there was a nice caravan park just out of town called Warrawong, so we decided to check it out.

All sites are level with lovely green grass (no dust), water and power and the amenities block is huge and spotless. A great camp kitchen and a fire pit located in front.  Every evening, at 5pm, the fire is lit and the campers begin to gather. Our hosts, Jenny and Joe, have been busy in the kitchen setting up a lovely platter of cheese, bickies and various dips and salamis. One night Joe  cooked up some calamari over the coals…………..just delicious! That’s not all, at 10am Jenny has had the oven stoked and it’s time for scones, jam and cream.  They know how to look after their campers. We took advantage of the ‘pay for 3 nights get the 4th night free’. Thanks guys for the pleasurable stay.

We had a look around Wilcannia. A nice town but it is looking a bit sad as most of the shops have closed down. I am not sure of the population, but on Saturday the football field was the hive of activity with all the youngsters have a game of footy.

So if you are out  that way stop by and help this little town back on their feet.

Warrawong Caravan Park also has cabins. you can meet ‘Rissole’ the emu. She is very inquisitive and be careful of your jewellry!

Well the next town was White Cliffs. They were having a Music Festival but we visited during the day and all the action appeared to be happening in the evening.

White Cliffs is an Opal town and the majority of the homes are underground. The only way the residents can live in the heat.

This town has to be seen to be appreciated. Well worth the visit.

I just love the colours of the outback. Maybe I am repeating myself but it seems to calm me.
