If you travel through Parkes, you have to visit the Dish. The display is small and simple, the achievements impressive and the dish itself stunning. Now why didn’t I do astronomy instead of mathematics?
Fun in the bush
Living Sculpture Garden, Broken Hill
This afternoon Carmel and I visited the the Living Sculpture Garden on a hill overlooking Broken Hill. (You can see the town faintly in the feature picture.)
Unfortunately it as cold, windy and about the rain while we were up there, so we did not spend very long. (It seems odd that the rain on this trip was at Kings Canyon, Uluru and Broken Hill.)
On a good day, the hill would be worth a walk.
Main Cafe, Peterborough
On the road from Port Augusta to Broken Hill we stopped off at Peterborough (or perhaps Petersburg) for lunch. We chose the 228 on Main Cafe, and found it was a huge (and frigid) old theatre, and they filled the interior with the most amazing paraphernalia.
