Travelled from Burren Junction to Pilliga (only 38 klms away) where there were more bore baths (artesian thermal pools) to enjoy and the main attractions for me was to see the ‘Scar Trees’ which have considerable historical significance.
There were some cut down and used as firewood some time back and there was a huge furore over it…..which is to be expected. The unfortunate thing is there are no real signs about to inform you of their significance and of all people I chatted with there….none had any idea what I was talking about….. they just look like dead trees as you can see by the attached pic.
Apart from the HUGE sandflies....big enough to put saddles on and ride....it was a great stop over. I would have stayed longer had it not been for the sandflies.
