South of Gulargambone I headed off the highway again,





Then off the road off the highway, through this road which ran through paddocks



Saw a signpost to "Timbrebongie Falls" which I coulnd't resist following, because the land out here is so flat I had to see what passed for a waterfall.
Not quite sure how it got to be called a Falls. There was just a bit of a camping area beside a river. Looks like the place the local P-Platers come and tear up in their 4WDs on a Saturday night.





I rolled into Narromine a few minutes before sunset and decided to call it a day. The local pub had a few rooms out the back and I even ended up with a guard dog to look after the bike overnight.

I forgot about this pic.



At about lunchtime I was on the Bingara-Narrabri road, and there is one particularly nice section of road where it passes through Killarney Gap. Right at the summit is a parking area and I stopped in the shade for a break. There was another rider there on his Z900. He was a local from Narrabri. After a chat it seems that there aren't too many places worth riding to when you live in Narrabri, so he loads a few cans of beer into his backpack and rides the 40km or so up to Killarney Gap, stands around and drinks his cans and then rides home. Anyhow, he was pretty pleased with his new bike.
