Blayney to Sandy Hollow NSW

Scenery along the Bylong Gighway NSW through a somewhat rugged area as we travelled from Blayney to Sandy Hollow NSW. We hadn't been through this way before. 
Some photos taken out the window others not.





The area called Growee, NSW








Area called Murrumbo




Bylong area in NSW


Down the hill if the area called Kerrabee, NSW


Murrumno, NSW






A long Paddock at Ginghi, NSW  There was a caravan parked on the side of the road but off the road with drovers looking after a great many cattle.  It appeared that the cattle would be there for sometime to come eating grass off the side of the road.

  1. Some parts look semi arid. It seemed you traveled many, many kilometers that day.

  4. That looks a lovely rugged area to drive through with each turn of the road offering a different view.

    1. You are right on the view being different around every corner in that area. After travelling on the 'flat' it was nice to see mountains and hills.

  5. The grass is always tastier the other side of the fence.

    1. So they say, so they say. The poor creatures only had dirt to eat on the other side of the fence.

    1. Sure is dry there Merle - but dry so many places at the moment, some place have dried right off in the past two weeks I heard.

  7. Bush fire country - photos 1 to 8 show this clearly and I think this has been an affected area of the last week. One wonders why that burnt out car from maybe a previous bushfire hasn't been removed - a bloody eye-sore or then possibly a reminder???
    The Murray Grey cattle look in good nick but it is certainly very dry - a tinder box in waiting!
    It was at Denman just below Sandy Hollow that I was given my first horse ride after WW 2. Relatives on my father's side had properties up there.
    It was and still is real Equestrian country. Country shows, horse studs and pony clubs etc. are the social get together affairs.

    I wonder is the house with the red roof in photo #5 still there...too many trees close to it to my liking.
    Great photos
    Cheers
    Colin

    1. We wondered why that vehicle hadn't been moved, they are usually.
      So many places are horsey places often see the jumps for the children/teenagers and adults in the paddocks.
      I reckon that house would still be there as I don't think fires have hit that area. In a situation where that house is it's no wonder they get burnt when a fire comes through.

  8. Hairpin bends when towing a caravan must be a bit interesting. I believe they have to get permits to graze on the roadside.

    1. Yes they do need a permit for the long paddock Andrew.
      My husband likes going around bends doesn't matter how big they are or steep down or up, we are used to it. Just drive to the conditions. Here in Tasmania we have been the Elephant Pass, St. Mary's Pass and 99 bends between Queenstown and Gormanston many times with the van on - for us no big deal.

  9. Such beautiful countryside, and I don't think we have been through that part so it will go on my "to do" list. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you. This is probably the first year I have taken photos from inside the car out the front window - certainly easier than standing in the middle of the highway.

  16. Quintessential Australian countryside.
    We lived near Blayney for a while. It can be very cold there - we got snowed in each winter, and riding home one night frost settled on our thighs.
