Utes in the Paddock Ootha
We heard about the utes in the paddock, so we headed for Ootha. We ended up lost by putting the wrong GPS coordinates format into a new GPS. We ended up 17km away up a very narrow gravel road. We were lucky as just as we stopped to work out where we were a young couple with the kids in the back seat of their car pulled up and kindly set us on the straight and narrow. We didn’t even have to turn around, we just followed the back roads until we hit the gravel and headed for Ootha. It was worth the hassle. It was a great attraction almost in the middle of nowhere, but I recommend to anyone to take the time to plan their trip around the “Utes in the Paddock”.
Leaving Ootha we headed back towards the Newell Hwy. We stopped for a break at Kelly Reserve and in keeping with a growing trend of Trains, Planes and Automobiles, another photo opportunity presented itself.
Further up the road we called in to check out the dish.
Terramungamine Reserve Dubbo
Terramungamine Reserve was our stop for the night, a small spot on the river. The best and flattest spots are out of bounds and fenced off, but at least we got almost the last spot left, not very flat so we stayed hooked up and still managed to get the van level.
