    Hay

    July 5, 2016 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 9 °C

    I expected Hay to be a bit bigger than what it was.

    While I was here, I popped into the Dunera museum, which is located in an old train carriage. There's not much to it - really just some photocopied info sheets on the walls, a few interesting photos and an audio narrative on repeat - but it was interesting nonetheless. A good spot to stretch your legs and feed your brain (it's a $4 entry fee - they use an honesty system). Anyway, the museum is all about the internment and POW camps that were located in Hay during WW2. You can read much of the history online, and they don't have many artefacts in the museum, but still - worth a visit to support them. Perhaps their collection will expand over time.

    The info centre lady suggested that I head over to Shear Outback for lunch. I didn't really have time to do the tour (and at $20 a pop..hmm). I really just needed a quick bite before hitting the road for the long slog to Mildura - instead I got a loooooong wait and a burnt roll and a smidge of salad. On the bright side, the lamb and gravy inside was delicious.
