Pilliga Picnic ...

There is a camping ground adjacent the picnic area
Given our original itinerary was somewhat ambitious, we took the advice of the National Parks ranger and scaled back the day's outing.

We picked up some picnic provisions from the Baradine IGA and then headed out of town to the Sculptures in the Scrub.

Upon arrival, the picnic area was lovely - like new - and Nick set up our fuel stove to boil the billy while I used the free BBQ to sizzle our sausages.  Although sunny and clear the wind was very strong, so we chased after our plastic plates and other items a few times! 

We had bought stamps at Baradine Post Office and chatted to the postal worker for a little while.  She had recommended the Coonabarabran bread sold at the IGA (the Baradine Bakery had closed down about 10 years prior to our visit!) - and she was right.  Of course, the last of my roasted tomato/capsicum chilli relish also added greatly to our sausage sangas!

Nick had boiled extra water to clean the BBQ plate but as we were eating, two National Parks rangers pulled up (from Narrabri - 100km away) to clean the BBQs and check on the loo etc.
