Left Gunnedah at about 9.30 am for our 87 km drive to Narrabri. Stopped at Boggabri for morning tea, had a walk around the main street before having our cuppa.
At Narrabri we booked into the Big Sky Caravan park which is right in the middle of town. Walked around the CBD before returning to the caravan for lunch.
In the afternoon we visited the CSIRO Australian Telescope, this is an array of six 22 metre radio dish antennas. Five of these are mobile on a 3 km rail track, the six is fixed (75 metre track) located 5 km further to the west. The whole installation is quite impressive.

We then drove to Yarrie Lake, a 3 km saucer shaped lake believed to have been formed by a falling meteor.
Finally we completed a loop by visiting Wee Waa before returning to Narrabri.
Had dinner at the local RSL in the Outback Shack, every so often they would turn on the 'special' effect of recorded thunder & rain, as well as water falling from the corrugated roof into a hidden floor drain.
