Mallee Highway

New South Wales to South Australia.

Going to South Australia via the Mallee Highway. It is the quickest route from New South Wales to Adelaide so they tell me. I started off at Balranald after working a few months in Griffith.

I think this may be a western grey but I am not sure. Will have to get some ID confirmation from the experts..

I crossed the Murray River at Tooleybuc, did a couple of dog legs and then I was onto the Mallee Highway. It is just mile after mile of red sand and wheat fields.

After a few towns such as Ouyen, they all started to look the same after a while. Now they are just a blur. But it is a quiet highway and there are not heaps of people around.

Not sure what this is, maybe some kind of grassbird. Will ask the experts again.
