On the way to Clay Push in Gulgong NSW. Over the Great Dividing Range in fog (1), through central Queensland and New South Wales (2) through Dunedoo to Gulgong (3), a ten and a half hour drive.
Gulgong is an historic town where many of the original buildings remain. Dame Nellie Melba sang in the old opera house in the main street.(4 & 5)
This morning Kim and I went up to register at what is called Red Hill. I recall gold was first discovered at this spot in Gulgong. Delegates were putting their wares out on long tables to sell or swap in the large marquee set up for demonstrations (6).
Tonight we kick off with a welcome at the Bowling Club along with dinner, and the main action starts tomorrow (7).
A line up of interesting Masters and presenters ahead (8).
