Narrabri, NSW (6 - 7 November, 2009)

Narrabri, a small town of many wonders, Mt Kaputar National Park and a true gem of natural beauty – Sawn Rocks, when I first saw them many years ago, I was filled with wonder; volcanic rocks looking like giant pipes from a cathedral organ.  The 6 dishes of the CSIRO Australia Telescope are only 25km west of Narrabri and well worth a visit as well as the Australian Cotton Exhibition Centre, even if cotton growing is not a popular subject in Australia at present, still worth a visit to see how a Cotton Gin works.  Oh, and by the way, did you know it takes double the amount of water to grow Lucerne (know in the USA) than cotton!!!!  A farmer who grows Lavender and Lucerne told us that little gem!
