canola fields in regional nsw

Don't be deceived, as beautiful as they were, the canola fields were not soft! They were prickly and difficult to wade through. The idea to visit a canola field has been over a year in the making, and it finally came into fruition. In my friend's very tiny volkswagen, it was a very steep and bendy four-hour drive from Sydney. It was certainly an interesting trip (we may or may not have been yelled at by a passing truck). Now if there was only a nice lavender field somewhere in NSW. And the portfolio building continues.

We were hoping to have a picnic in the fields, but it wasn't a good idea. On the drive back to Sydney we pulled over at a nice rest stop and had our picnic there. It was a fun day for what it was - eight hours in the car, two Maccas stops (quintessential road trip must), trying to discern our location through radio frequencies, and frolicking in a canola field. The latter, at least we tried. The canola was very tall.

  2. These photos are so nice! I didn't know there were canola fields specifically in NSW. Too bad they were too prickly to picnic in haha.

    1. I think the closest one is on route to Canberra, but it's smaller! This one's in Cowra, which felt so, so far away. I heard there are others too!
