Here's what happened after 50 mm of rain. Nothing compared to when cyclone rains come and swells the road crossing creeks up to 2 metres deep.
New Norcia - New Norcia Hotel was a luxury compared to the caravan parks, camp trailers, backpackers, roadhouses, and sheep station stays that we had on our July holiday. Hot showers and clean white sheets in a heated room, that also came with a breakfast the next morning was heaven. The stonework at the entrance titled SALVE, Latin for salvation, was fitting. New Norcia is a monastic community, all buildings belong to the 70 or so Benedictine monks that live, work, and pray there. The walkabout in the grounds was peaceful and tranquil.
