We've had a couple of rest days now, always a good opportunity to get out and about. Cassilis has only a pub and post office for everything else the locals need to go out-of-town. Merriwa at 45km is the closest town with a supermarket, butcher, fuel etc. and the all important dump point. Not a big place but it has the essentials.

Mudgee, 85km away, on the other hand, has everything including choice. It's a busy commercial centre with all the vehicle traffic to prove it. Doing what's needed and heading 'home' is the order of the day, IMO.

Uarbry is/was the nearest town to Cassilis, about 20km away. Is was a small village of 10 houses, a church, and a community hall. Now it's just two houses. 
Nearby is Tongy Station one of the larger properties in the area and had a heritage-listed homestead, not anymore.
