Day 27: The road to Gundagai

'There's a track winding back an old-fashioned shack
Along the road to Gundagai –
Where the blue gums are growing

And the Murrumbidgee's flowing
Beneath that sunny sky.'
(not quite sunny today but at least it's not wet)

Linda & Daniel are walking, Tri & Majid driving support vehicles. Cate and kids at Gundagai's Laundromat


Dinner at Gundagai Baptist (although most were from the Anglican Church - thank you ladies for the food for both days!). Thanks, Bill for organising the gathering, and thank you, Graeme and Sue, for your generous hospitality - hosting Majid, Lind, and Daniel at the rectory, and putting us Nguyens in the Motel.
Kids play spoon/ fish with Majid while Tri and Linda shared their stories. Graeme is a minister of four parishes! Sue a Mental Health Nurse. 

Read how an indigenous man saves 49 people from the Gundagai flood. he was made a hero one day, and another was harassed by young people of the town.
