Heading West

The Barrier Highway heads across the Western Plains to Broken Hill and the deserts of South Australia. Leaving the Warrumbunbles shrinking in the rear view mirror the landscape opened out with big skies and the road tapering to a point on the horizon.
Wild flowers along the road side.
The Dry grassland to the far west of New South Wales.
One of few plants in flower, the flowers tough and waxy to the touch, presumably to guard against desiccation.
The smart and tidy Post Office building in the tiny town of Wilcannia half way along the Barrier Highway. This is the only smart building in the otherwise dilapidated and dying ex-mining town now left by the way side.
 

A few of the empty dilapidated buildings along the high street.
