This is not my usual DIY, Home Decor or Recipe post! Today I’m going to take you on a road trip to a beautiful part of the Australian countryside. Eugowra a small country town where my hubby grew up. It is about 6 hours west of Sydney in New South Wales. With a population of around 600 people, it is so nice to get out there as often as we can to escape the hustle and bustle of where we live. They are experiencing floods at the moment which only occurs every so often and everything is so green and lush. So without further or do, I hope you enjoy our Eugowra Country Road Trip Adventure!
Eugowra Country Road Trip Adventure
The countryside is full of Canola crops at the moment and the contrast between yellow and green is just stunning! Hopefully, the rain will stop soon so that the fields can be harvested. Hubby said to me as we were travelling along that he doesn’t remember the fields so green and lush in over 20 years!
The sweet little sheep have plenty of green delicious grass to munch on!
This sweet little church is in a small town called Cudal which we passed through on our way to Eugowra. The lawn was just sprinkled with sweet yellow daisies.
One of my favourite landmarks that tells me we are almost there is this old house. I would LOVE to get my hands on and restore it. The coolest part about the house is that it has a round chimney which is something that you don’t see very often!
The flood was about 5 minutes up the road from my in-law’s house. You couldn’t see the road ahead at all as it was all covered with water. All of this water had come from the Lachlan River which my hubby tells me he would spend a lot of time there as a child fishing and swimming!
I noticed a little family of ducks having a wonderful time and tried to capture them with my camera but the water was running way too fast!
My in-law’s house backs right onto a creek which had flooded a few weeks earlier and the water had come right up to their back step. Luckily there was no damage to the house. I have to say that my Mum-in-law had some of the most stunning roses I have ever seen in her garden!! This particular rose is called a double delight.
I do hope that one day I will be able to grow stunning roses like this one day!
As always all good things must come to an end. So after having a lovely time were back on the road heading home. We decided to make a quick stop at an old railway station at Bowenfels. You can find it just outside of Lithgow.
The arches on this railway bridge are just amazing! I’m sure that it has had many coal trains cross it in its time!
I have to say that our trip’s out to Eugowra are never boring or tedious! There is always something to look at and you can feel yourself unwinding as you travel along!
Be sure to PIN for later 🙂
Wow, what beautiful countryside you have. It’s funny how we have a vision in our head of what a place is like, until we see it. I never expected so much green, it’s just lovely!
That old home would be fantastic if you could remodel it. The roof on the porch looks rounded? I wonder if that’s metal?
I’m so glad you were able to get away and spend some time in a love and quiet place with all those lovely roses!
Usually Toni this is all brown and dry which is probably the same as what you have pictured in your head but because of all of the rain and floods out there at the moment it is luscious and green! Yes, the porch is rounded and made from tin and I would LOVE to get my hands on it to do up! It was a quick trip but a beautiful one especially looking at all of the roses! 🙂
