A Week On The Farm

We’d promised ourselves a quiet few days after all the rushing around of late and found the perfect place to do just that – Auburn Farm. We met Greg and Jill who own Auburn a few years ago on a camp site. We’ve always kept in touch and they kept Geoffrey for us last year. The farm, some 1500 acres (small by Australian standards) is situated some 30kms outside the town of Inverell in NSW. The last few miles are down a gravel road so remote and peaceful it certainly is. We spend much of our time sitting on their verandah with super views over miles of rolling farmland with sheep, cattle and horses grazing it, farmland that is burnt brown as there is a severe drought at the moment but it does make it look all the more like real Australia to us. We had planned just to spend a few days here but Greg and Jill are so welcoming, the food excellent and unlimited cold beers and with temperatures around 30 degrees since we arrived it is difficult to imagine a more perfect setting.

We rarely go out other than Lynne going to play bingo at the local bowls club one afternoon! We all went to have a BBQ at Copeland Dam on Saturday. This is a huge project, supplying water to the surrounding area. As usual the Aussies do this sort of thing so well – a commercial project i.e. the dam and then free bbq’s and camping spots spread for many miles around the lake.

We’ve been doing some work getting Geoffrey serviced and ready for our next advventure and Greg has done an excellent fitting a extra 25 litre fuel can that sits on the back bumper.

We had intended to leave on Sunday but Greg insisted on having a full Sunday roast and wanted Yorkshire puddings cooking to go with it so of course we were only too happy to oblige.
