Wednesday Steve guided me around on his bike.



First we went from Numeralla to an abandoned gold mining village and
from there to Braidwood for lunch using forest tracks.
Short before we arrived in Braidwood Steve had a flat back tire on his DR650.











Because the tire started to disintegrate on the inside we had to stop
two more times to the end of the trip to fix it.

Thursday I went to the ACT (Australian Capital Territory) to visit the capital Canberra.
I spend most of the time at the War Memorial because I used the offer of a guided tour and it was really interesting.









I drove around Parliament House, through the embassies district and up to a lookout on one of the mountains.

Its on Cowra Creek. Was the water supply for the nearby gold mine. Mine shut down about 20 yrs ago, and all the adits etc were capped about 15 yers ago. If the gold price cracks $xxxx it'll likely be reopened. There's an old township site nearby, Dom has a pic above of the Post Office remains. The mine ran for about 100 yrs.

Thanks BergDonk, I assumed he was around Newmeralla in Victoria but didn't realise there was one in NSW as well.

The Vic one is spelt funny, but not tooo far away. It used to be the regular fuel stop on the way to PI FWIW.

On Friday a motorcycle suspension workshop started at Steve's.



The suspension specialist Frank and the first customer Rowan already arrived the evening before so I spend some time watching Franks work until the weather improved.





I wanted to reach the Wombeyan Caves for that day on a track a got from Steve the day before.



When I arrived I saw the highest number of roos I had seen so far.

Saturday I drove into Sydney.



My host Matt wasn't in town for the weekend but his other guest Carlo and Matts dogs were there to let me in.
On Sunday morning I used my bike to get into the CBD and parked it in the Botanic Garden / The Domain to have a walk around.

On Monday I went into the city again but this time by train.











First I just walked around but then I discovered a free-guided city walking tour.



I saw places and head stories I wound never seen or heard of on my own. I can highly recommend those tours and make sure to give the guide a tip.

You're right Western Pacific, old Sydney town is pretty good.
I'd never spent much time here until the last few months, and have been working here 3 or 4 days per week for that time. And quite enjoying it.
And the reason for being up here is the demolition site (the large round building) in the background of Dominik's photo:
Unfortunately I don't get to knock the buggers down, I work on the design of the new ones. I think knocking them down would be more fun....
