Toukley to Coonamble
Day one of the trip I was mainly concerned with covering some miles. With a choice of playlists on Spotify and cruise control keeping me close to legal we arrived at our campsite on the Castlereagh River mid-afternoon. We did stop along the way for leg stretches - often triggered by a bird on a overhead wire or roadside post. The Apostlebirds that have often been our camping companions were there to welcome us. A Spiny Cheeked Honeyeater investigated the acacia we camped under and Black Kites soared above.
The Riverside Walk added Galahs, Red-winged Parrots, Sulphur-crested Cockatoos and Fairywrens to our tally.
