    wheat country at Tammin

    November 12, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    The country out here is already dry and flat, even though we are less than 2 hours east of Perth. It must be a tough life out here.

    Smokoe in Merredin

    November 12, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    The train takes a five minute stop in Merredin to change the train crew. The smokers take the chance for a crafty drag. And Rob for a crafty stroll ;-)

    A lot of nothing

    November 12, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    East of Merredin the wheat farms soon disappear. After that, there’s just a lot of nothing: sparse, struggling scrub, interspersed with open russet ground, and the dirt maintenance road which tracks alongside the railway like a dusty friend.Read more

    Arrived

    Arrived in one piece after a better than expected train experience. Apart from the hard seats which gave me a numb bum. Here’s Rob signing out the car.

    Evening in Kal

    November 12, 2020 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 24 °C

    A wander into town - 20 minutes away - was rewarded with a totally delicious Thai meal at Yada Thai on Hannan Street. As good a Thai meal as I’ve had anywhere.

    Super pit

    November 13, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    The super pit has 1.5 hour tours running, taking you around this working open pit mine site. The hole is roughly 3.5 km long, 1.5 km wide and at its deepest is 650 m. And it’s still growing. It’s well worth a look. We’ll head back to the public lookout this afternoon to watch a blast, scheduled for 5:30 pm.Read more
