Rain at Trilby Station

Have just been emailed by Liz at Trilby Station and they have had 34 mls of RAIN.
Hopefully there will be some followup rain between now and the National Gathering so that the place will look green :)

I have also heard that there is currently 120 people booked for the dinner on Wednesday night so it looks like it is going to be a great night.

Can people also contact the Bourke NPWS office (02 6830 0202) to express an interest in doing the guided tour of Toorale National Park. I am in contact with Andrew there and have suggested if numbers are good enough that maybe they can run a Tour on Tuesday and Thursday for us, so as to keep the vehicle numbers a bit lower.

Cheers Kev

G'day Kev

I am soooooooooooooooooo envious of Trilby's 34mm of rain. We managed a mere 21mm here in Tamworth and that's it for this particular rain event.

John,

I think the rain was needed everywhere. We ended up with 36mm here in Chinchilla

Cheers Kev

I have just been looking at this post and have to say that you guys will have a ball out there. I have been going to a property named yathonga which is almost directly across the river from trilby, for about 30 years. We engage in secret mens business, assisting in reducing the numbers of feral animals. I have met gary and liz many times at social functions or at shindy's inn or tilpa pub, both must do visits. Gary is related to the owner of yathonga. If the rain they have just had sticks the country will be spetacular. I will be trying to get out there in october but i think work will get in the way. If possible try and get out at night a throw a spotlight around not to shoot but to see what gets around during the night particularly around the tanks. The other must do if possible is to do a fly over of the properties and the river country, may not be possible but you may get lucky if gary is doing a water check or similar.

Steve,

I am hoping I can get a flight with Gary :)
I helped prune some sucker tree's on the end of the runway when down there last month doing a recon.

There was plenty of wildlife about during the night as well, especially Feral cats and the odd fox.

Cheers Kev
