Friday 19th October, (Forbes).

We are now in Forbes, we bypassed Parkes, as we wanted to travel a greater distance than to Parkes. The decision turned out to be what could have been a good one as Forbes is a township that impressed us a great deal. It is very tidy, as the plaques for awards won for this demonstrate, that has kept its heritage as well as keeping up with modern times.

The town impressed me to the degree that I just had to take heaps of photos of it.

There seems to be plenty to do here, so we may have to consider staying longer than the 4 days planned, or plan on coming back later.
