Heifer Creek Theiss Memorial

Don’t you just love GPS’s especially on country roads. They take you on roads you wouldn’t think of traveling up and down windy roads, past lovely vistas. Try and send you up some dirt road short cut, or just try and tell you to turn down a road that just isn’t there and then get you lost. I’m sure they do it deliberately and have a little laugh about it, we call ours Bossy Betsy.

Eventually we made it to our last stop for the trip, Heifer Creek Thiess Memorial. Rather a pleasant surprise as you come up a steep hill into an open green grass area with plenty of trees for shade next to the creek. There are long drop toilets, bins and several tables. Not a bad one night stop. A memorial commemorates the contribution of the Thiess Brothers (Bert and Leslie) to Australian earth moving.
