Wingello Things to Do: 16 reviews and 19 photos
Estimated time - 40 minutes.
Very few visitors get away without doing the tour of the back paddock. Maybe the wallaby and her joey will turn up, maybe not. I can guarantee wombat holes, a scribble bark tree with strange scrawly writing on it, and the dam. The highlight of the tour is of course our dead car.
Then you will be taken into the house and offered light refreshments.
I must have escorted people on this tour maybe 500 times over the last 25 years. When Pattypoo was here I couldn't talk her into sticking her head down a wombat hole. She wasn't up for that. But Bernishand was and camcorderman took the pics.
Pattypoo wasn't impressed that I had got the time of her train wrong and we sat for over an hour outside the shop being eaten alive by mosquitos. (Sorry about that.) But we did get to see a young gel get a ride home from an obliging local because her uncle had run out of petrol and couldn't pick her up. Bit of local drama. Always takes your mind off being eaten alive by mosquitos.
