Outback 2011: Warialda: Commercial Hotel

And so the 2011 Outback trip comes to an end. Our last day sees a long drive from Miles in Queensland, back to Armidale, NSW. This image is of the Commercial Hotel in Warialda. Lunch was had in this small town.

According to Wikipedia, a peculiarity of Warialda is that “some of the locals also earn a dollar or two hunting wild pigs, which are exported, mainly to Germany, where there are demands for wild boar which are not present in the Australian market”.

Outback 2011: Miles: Wide load
