The guide book said the area was a really good example of geological organ-piping, of course it is. On to Narrabri the next morning for provisions and fuel. The Newell being so unattractive to me I decided Boggabri would be different, lunched there then spent the arvo in the swimming pool with all the town kids. Not that bad actually a nice facility. Drove on to Curlewis for a look see then decided the Oxley toward Coonabarabran was the go. Overnighted at a rest area and had a quiet night with very little traffic.

Snapped this at about 9pm on a 35 second shutter and with my torch providing extra illumination to the foreground. Note the Southern Cross constellation above the tree.
