Today we start what we hope will be a regular blog post on some of our favourite places to explore and camp around this beautiful country of ours.
For our first ‘Sunday shorts’ post we are starting off very close to home for us. A short few hours west of Sydney, just over the beautiful sandstone escarpment of the Blue Mountains lies the Central Tablelands of NSW. And just up the road, literally from the ‘Mountain Shack Farm’ is a place packed full of history, adventure and numerous serene riverside camps to escape the hustle and bustle of the everyday. We count ourselves very lucky to have this in our very own backyard. We are of course talking about the historic Bridle Track along with the former gold mining villages of Hill End and Sofala. A visit to either of these quaint villages is like a step back in time and you will be looking for your horse and buggy not the 4WD to head off in. We have had artilcles published on this area and it features in some of our previous posts as well as in a couple of our ebooks. Even with all this we just wanted to mention this very special place again and if you haven’t had a chance to check it out the we urge you to consider this scenic, historic and relaxing place on your next weekend sojourn.
