Places

Mathinna is a town out from Fingal out towards the east coast.  Gold used to be mined out there as recently as 1990’s by a Russian mining company.  More recent exploration might mean the mine is opened again.  Workers were left stranded when it closed down and a couple of Russians were never heard from again.

A person I worked with owns an old Catholic Church high on a hill.  Free camped on his block.  Church is heritage listed.  No water or power so it was our first free camp for 5 nights.
