    Glenreagh Camping ground

    April 1, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Every now and then we find another memorable camp. Here we had a nice area to set up camp, good amenities and a modest pricing. Tonight is a full moon, but more than that it is a blue or harvest moon. Nature put on a fantastic rising moon show and lit the night for us.

    When we left the next day we noticed a huge dog like sculpture. We think it is meant to be a dingo and probably designed to make the shop more noticeable.

    Glenreagh Rail Station remains.

    April 1, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    This station must have been an important stop in days of steam. The massive water tank make one think of many engines picking water as they steam up and down the line. It looks like a long time ago since there were people at the station and even longer since the tank watered steam engines. The last steam engines would have been retired in the1970's.

    Diesel engines were introduced that only required a couple of drivers. As more people can own their own cars the trains become less used. Towns all along the rail lines dissappear unless they get reinvented for other activities. Now Glenreagh is a mere whisper of its glorious steam filled past.
