The Golden Quest Discovery Trail
Ladies and Gentlemen I’m currently blogging from the car. I’m in Australia’s Golden Outback on the Golden Quest Discovery Trail with my guide Outback Jac, and every time I try and write a post at night he drags me into an Aussie Outback pub (…drags? Hmmmm, probably the wrong word).
The Golden Quest Discovery Trail is a 965km self-drive round-trip adventure, exploring the historical towns that were once booming 100 years ago when the Gold Rush hit. Nowadays the towns are more of an education of How We Used To Live.
I like a bit of history stuff so found it really interesting.
After waking up in the 31st President of the United States old bed at Hoover House, it was time to hit the road.
We passed through the living ghost town of Kookynie, population 2,320 hardy souls 110 years ago, compared to today’s 12.
The Grand Hotel Kookynie pub’s still open though.
