The Tops – Cool Glen

We’re in the Barrington Tops National Park proper now, making our way to Thunderbolts Lookout.

Captain Thunderbolt (otherwise known as Fred Ward), was a bushranger who roamed the Hunter Valley-New England area in the 1860’s, robbing his way into history until one day he was allegedly killed by the police. Others say that it was his uncle who was killed, and that Fred and his mum made a quick getaway to Canada where he lived till a ripe old age.


I can imagine Fred and his merry gang resting in this quiet, sheltered glen. Can you?

I’ll be away on holidays for a little while, and will finish this series when I return.
