Day 34

Halls Creek

Today we took a trip to look at a few different sights… China Wall and Old Halls Creek.  It shouldn’t have been too long a trip.  Except we missed the turn off to Old Halls Creek and ended up all the way back at Palm Spring before we realised that we had definitely gone too far.  Oops.

So back we went again.

Stopped in Old Halls Creek.

This is the post office.  It was built from a mixture of hay and ants’ hill mud.  It does look like a huge ants’ nest in some ways.

This car was on the way to the cemetery.

When we arrived Brett noticed a nail in the tyre, and pulled it out.  No damage fortunately.

China Wall was fascinating.  Although I’m only sharing the one picture there were also two other lines just like this, each one progressively lower.  And this one was visible for quite a long way down the road, just not as obvious or impressive.
