Hortons Creek

Nymboida Area

Heading down south from Kyogle, I spent the weekend near Casino, then headed to Grafton , then inland towards Nymboida. Just before Nymboida, I found a camp spot next to a creek and in the morning carried on to Horton’s Creek, where I went for a walk along the creek bed. There was no water in the creek, just lots of big stones. I found a waterhole where the Bell Miners were coming to have a drink.
