Broken hill

Book your accommodation well in advance - 3 major constructions going on and very hard to get accommodation. We had to take a room in a dump because only room available $150.

Only other alternative was another 3 hour drive to Wentworth and too many kangaroos and emu wandering the road at dusk. Be extra vigilant on the road drought conditions have caused wildlife to come close to the roads. Have never seen so many dead or dying animals near or on the road,

Also cars broken down with smashed windscreens.

I think that will be solar farms.

Same thing happening in other locations in the area too such as Mildura. Whole motels have been rented out long term for the workers.

And i agree about the kangaroos. The "big red" kangaroos can be 2 metres tall. They can do a lot of damage. a ute with a heavy duty bull bar came into our work place last year or the year before. The bullbar was bent back into the side of the ute on both sides. They said they had hit a cow on one side and a kangaroo on the other. The damage looked the same.
