|The track through the trees|
|The old posts|
With more rain threating to wash our expedition out and the wet red soil making things defficult for the metal-detectors, we decided to end our efforts for the day and head for home. We resolved to wait until a bush fire passed through the reserve to clean in up before we made another attempt to explore this old site. I was quite amazed at how quickly the landscape can alter back to a more natural state, leaving little trace behind of its former tenants. On the way home, we called into the old Herberton racecourse site but could find no trace of that old historic track what-so-ever. Maybe we were looking in the wrong place! I will leave that for another trip.
