For some time our route was over a flat road through the Bush, presenting a perfect avenue of glorious trees and tree ferns, Prince of Wales feathers &c. except where the river had washed away the road – the remainder of the day’s ride was between the hills, and at night we stop at an accommodation house. Gold reefs were working in the neighbourhood.
