Tuesday 9th November, Columboola to Millmerran

A morning full of sunshine and the sounds of the bush envelop us as we have our bacon and eggs by the creek at Columboola Country campsite (link to www.columboola.com.au).  The mercury heads towards 30 degrees and dogs and children all cool off swimming in the creek.

After our picnic lunch of watermelon and ham sandwiches, we strike camp and head off.

Leaving Columboola, we pass the adjacent mining operation. Coal falls continuously from the elevator, piling into jet black pyramids, glistening in the bright sunlight. This is a new operation with excavation just started on the big coal seam recently found; there’s a new railway under construction too. I hope the carbon capture we learned about at Blackwater comes on steam successfully.
