We have had a great day. It started early at the Caravan Park as I was keen to have a load of washing done prior to us leaving.
|View over West Leihhardt Station|
We travelled along the Flinders Highway for about 20 km then turned north toward Julius Lake. The gravel road was quite good. After 15 km we came to the gateway into West Leichhardt Station where we had booked a spot to stay the day/night. It was a shady park so we spent the afternoon very quietly reading and stitching in my case. The Leichhardt Station is a working cattle station of 28,000 acres with 7,000 head of cattle. Tomorrow is Mustering Day so we hope to be able to stay at least until lunch time and maybe for a 2nd night. Mustering is done by helicopter and is planned to begin about 7.00am. Paul, the manager/owner has suggested that the best place to see the mustering activity from, is a nearby ‘cone shaped hill’. It is about 1km to walk to the viewing point near the top. We plan to do this.
