Might have to sneak a couple of those hollow logs into the Cruiser before they get chopped up.

Would look good in the garden.   Grin

Nice spot and an amazing feed of yabbies as well.

The kids and myself headed about 300km south last week for a few nights to the abandoned Bulletin Mine. I was lured by the rumour of big yabbies, but it also turned out to be a pretty decent camping spot.
We stopped at the Broadarrow tavern for lunch on our way there, had a Broady Burger and put our names onto one of the few bare patches left on the walls. Got back on the road to discover our campsite was only about 12 minutes drive from the Broadarrow. So we did a bit of 4wding and scouting a few other potential dams but came back to the original location anyway.
Got set up with the nets in and we were very successful in that regard. Turns out there is marron in the dam as well! Unfortunately we had to throw them back as they're out of season and mostly undersized anyway. But was a welcome turn of events for marron season next January. Still, there was enough yabbies coming in to get us through.
All in all, it was a pretty nice location. There was a bit of a shallow pit nearby which was chockers full of rubbish (mostly empty stubbies and cans!) so we just camped away from that under a nice grouping of trees. Were able to do a bit of exploring on day 2 but once you've seen one disused pit, you've really seen them all. But here's a few photos if anyone's travelling through the area and want to check it out. I have a couple of videos I took using my drone but I have no idea how to put them up. Might have to upload on YouTube and link them. Will see how I go
