Postcard from Kalyarr
Don't try to find Kalyarr on the map, but you go west of Hay toward Maude then veer off again toward Oxley, then go bush. It is a National Park on the Lachlan that used to be a sheep station. It was 'dry as a bone' on the saltbush plains which is normal, but the amazing thing was the amount of water that is around in all the depressions and creeks. There is water where no one can remember water before - and the birdlife ... It is not yet open to the public but the Murrumbidgee Field Nats were allowed access for the weekend, and what would be a weekend without a Sunday morning ride.
