 There were quite a few bushwalkers here, but owing fo the reputation that Carlon'​s are establishing for the quantity and quality of the '​eats',​there was some congestion and our little crowd didn't sit down till 1.50 pm. This was a big moment of the trip. While Max clad in blue pyjama suit, had lain on his lonely bed of bracken - hollow logs are obsolete these days - his lips murmured "​Carlons"​. He was a short price favourite, but unfortunately he had made at breakfast a pancake consisting of half a billy of batter. Even a super-eater like Max has off days. Jack and I went through each course twice but that vegetarian wonder Dot, who lives on stewed nettles and ground-berries - oh yeah? - after having two helpings of MEAT, vegetables, three sorts of pudding, scones, raisin loaf, jam and cream, thoughtfully cleaned out the cream pots with a spoon. There were quite a few bushwalkers here, but owing fo the reputation that Carlon'​s are establishing for the quantity and quality of the '​eats',​there was some congestion and our little crowd didn't sit down till 1.50 pm.

 After having a meal in the town, we stretched ourselves on the floor of the waiting room. In the warm fire's gleam some of us probably saw pictures of Carlon Head; the last steep slope of Cloudmaker; the sunlight sparking on a Kowmung rapid. We drowsed, and along came the mail train. After having a meal in the town, we stretched ourselves on the floor of the waiting room.
