disused mine shafts. I stop at a sign that says Irish Town, but
the town has gone, flattened over time into a scattering of
corrugated iron. At the top of Bald Hill, I look across the
valley and at last, after two troublesome days, I feel my city
brain start to calm.
The next morning I drive to Dunns Swamp in Wollemi
National Park. I was here once before on a bleak winter’s
day and everything was grey. Today layers of sunlit colour
replace the grey. I walk along the edge of the ‘swamp’, which
is really a section of the Cudgegong River. The water
mirrors the sky. The track leads up past pagoda rock
formations and on to Kandos Weir. My plan was to walk all
the way, but it looks a bit steep and, well, I’m getting hungry.
I drive east to my luxury accommodation in Blackheath.
At the nearby Hydro Majestic Hotel, I sit by a window with
views over the Jamison Valley and enjoy complimentary
canapes with a pre-dinner beer.
On the final day, after a good breakfast, I drive home and
weigh myself. What – 110kg? After all that walking? So why
am I laughing? Because the road trip has smoothed me out.
I’m relaxed and happy. Without the walking, my weight gain
would be worse.
I love road trips. There will be more. More driving, more
walking, more moody landscapes. And definitely more
water, preferably sparkling and glass-bottled, and
purchased with love in the beautiful town of Bundanoon.
Far more picturesque than its name suggests,
Dunns Swamp (left) is part of the Cudgegong River
and was created when Kandos Weir was built in the
1920s. Below is the abandoned Erith Coal Mine.

In 1963, change was in
the air. John and Jackie
Kennedy were enjoying the
last golden days of Camelot. Four
lads from Liverpool were changing the
face of music. Martin Luther King had a dream...
and so did the engineers at Fishermans Bend. The
60s had arrived and it was time to give Australia the most
revolutionary new Holden ever. The result: The EH! Today,
the EH is reborn in a FIRST-OF-A-KIND clock capturing the
streamlined good looks of the most popular Holden ever!
AUTHENTIC PERIOD DETAIL SETS THE SCENE
Crafted in the shape of an old-fashioned servo, you’ll discover
vintage posters decorating the walls while Golden Fleece petrol
pumps add an authentic retro touch. Then make way for that 179
red-engined wonder! Precision-scaled in exacting detail and painted
by hand, the EH sedan has a special surprise. As the hour strikes
the EH “drives” out of the servo to the sound of a revving engine!
