Between Yeoval and Cumnock in the central west of NSW the locals have been having fun, providing dangerous distractions on a road which doesn’t allow much opportunity to pull off. We first noticed bikes suspended high in trees years ago – this stretch is part of our backroading to get to Queensland with a minimum of traffic. Always we said “We must stop.” This time we did, mainly because “the twins might enjoy these.” What we thought was just a bit of local fun and neighbourly competitiveness turns out to have links to the Dubbo Zoo, and an annual prize for the best addition to the menagerie.
These critters were chosen by the size of the verge that allowed us to pull over and photograph. There were many more.
