We left Forbes this morning in steady rain just after 9.00am. Our only aim today was to get above the bad weather. We had planned to stay at Hickeys Falls on the edge of the Newell Hwy. We arrived as the rain had almost stopped but the wind had picked up and the camping area was surrounded by large ugly and totally unsafe trees at any time, let alone on a windy night. We did check out the Falls and they did not disappoint, lots of water cascading down from the top creating a spectacular sight.
We decided we may as well make our way to the Narrabri Showground, lots of water laying everywhere, but solid enough to stay the night. It should only be a short drive tommorrow.
