Refuelling ...

It was just under 300km from Deniliquin to Hillston, our planned lunch-stop.  Oscar's roadside wander was taken early along that stretch.

We were interested to see a ballast train at Goolgowi (sorry, too busy looking to take pics!) - and there were many trucks piggy-backing their trailers also.  Further along, we called in to Merriwagga along for a quick glimpse of the memorial to pioneering women.  The small park also had very clean toilets, so we took advantage of those - and Oscar was given another break from the cage.

It took less than half an hour to get to Hillston, where we parked beside a shady table for lunch.  Vaughan was bothered by the many flies and Erin was frazzled by some sim-card issues, so it wasn't one of our more pleasant stops - even though we were watched over by many a number of corellas roosting in the trees beside us.

As you can see, Nick used our jerry-cans to give Elmer a much-appreciated drink!
