Old but not forgotten

Our holiday in New South Wales

September 2007

Right next to the caravan park in Lake Cargelligo, central New South Wales, is a museum. We didn’t take the time to visit the museum; you have to leave something for second and subsequent visits to places like this. What we could see just over the fence from the cabin we stayed in during our stay was a collection of old farm equipment on display.

This display included old tractors, ploughs, harvesters and a variety of other old pieces of machinery used in the early settlement days on this farming district. I recognised a number of items similar to those used by my father on the family farm back in South Australia.

I didn’t have time to get all nostalgic for the old days on the farm where I grew up. We had to be on our way to our next destination on this holiday.

    I’m Glad you Liked our little town. All of the items in the museum are from farms around the township of lake cargelligo. Most of them have a good story that goes with them. The Museum on it’s open days has horse work demo’s care of a local Draft horse stud well worth tring to get up for.

    Hi there Ki.lilly,

    Thanks for stopping by. we certainly did enjoy our short visit to your lovely town, despite the obvious ravages of the drought in the area. I heard on the news recently that you have since had good rains. Let us hope that you get much more next season and that the farmers can recover.

    We will certainly return in the future and spend far more time enjoying the lovely town and district.
