So one of the big aspects of Australian history is the convicts that were sent here from other countries it basically brought up the population of Australia besides the Aborigines, and they were sent to places like this hiring depots which are basically farms where a bunch of convicts would stay. Because they weren’t worried about them getting out. Because there’s really nowhere else to go. So they would set them up here, and they’d either work here at the farm or they would get sold off to other farmers or other people to be used that’s a little part of Australian history you don’t often hear about then it was a quick 45-minute drive to the town of Cole Bari to refuel, and buy my way into call bari National Park well thanks welcome let’s go check it out this trail paved, and everything not too bad let’s go see what we can find it was beautiful Canyon below that is crazy rock formations here yeah oh I scared off the Kangaroos the whole place to myself after a great hike I turn around, and head back down south a bit to seek out one of the most unique, and interesting stories in all of Australia very excited right now I am on my way to a new country, I’m still here in Australia on the west coast and, I’m driving into the Principality of hot river.
