Great Day in The Central Plains

Well was last night cold or what! The outside temperature dropped to minus 6° and inside the van it dropped to 2°! Good thing we had put an extra blanket on and donned the thermals before heading to bed. We woke up to sunny skies and set out on our adventure for today. First visit was to the Borenore Caves south of Molong. Great caves to explore and we spent an hour or more going through the different caverns (self guided)

From there we headed down to the Historic Village of Cargo for lunch then onto Canowindra and the Ages of Fishes Museum. A really awesome display of fossilised fish which you can reach out and touch. Its amazing to feel the skin texture of a species that lived (and died) millions of years ago. I never thought I would be so impressed by fossils. I highly recommend it to anyone passing that way.
