Armidale to Gulgong Part 1

Well what a day already, but we left Armidale at about 11:30 am. It meant that it was pedal to the metal I wanted to get to Gulgong as early in the day so that we could relax. We had an easy run to Tamworth with a quick bite to eat at a fast food restaurant – never good quality but it was a time saver.

Unfortunately we did not see a lot along the way and we stopped at Tamworth for lunch then we decided that we should get going. Then we stopped at Willow Tree for a cup of tea, then we moved on.

We then made it to Scone stopped at the information centre to look at a short cut through to Gulgong after the information we decided to take a road that lead us to the town of Merriwa.
After we arrived at Merriwa we needed LPG gas for the car we looked at the petrol station but they did not sell it... oh now I thought what are we going to do.
Simon was told that his maternal Grandfather is buried in Merriwa somewhere.
Simon came to the rescue and asked the man in the petrol station that did not sell LPG and the man said that there was a LPG outlet just over the hill but he was not sure that he would be there because of the time. Fortunately the man was there after we looked for him and he was able to fill the gas tank up.
