Laura to Wirraba

An early meeting at the Wirrabara Hotel (closed) then a short trip out to Marner's Road to meet the bus.
Laura main street

RailTrail pooh
After gathering around CJ in the main street of Laura for a group photo, we headed off along the RailTrail that parallels Main North Road, or Horrock's Highway as it has been renamed.
Deemed the dullest part of the reroute so far we eventually deviated to the west to get onto some pleasant back roads.
The country surprisingly lush and the creeks running and puddles to negotiate.
Morning tea saw the group listening to Russell give us some background to CJ Dennis and then came the poetry reading deferred from the previous night.
CJ gets a reading
Russell kicked off to be followed by Peter Wynen, Vicki and Julian, all giving a different slant to CJ's talents.
More roads leading us a rough road reserve, blighted by four motor bike riders and their noisy machines.
Lunch at Charcoal Road and then on to the end back at Marner's Road again.
Another section completed.
