It's late July 2012 as we drive into Narrabri and admire the double rainbow dominating the skyline.
It's a friday night in a township that is perhaps best known as a regional centre that suports a range of industries including forestry (mainly in the past), cotton and nature-based tourism (the superlative Mount Kaputar National Park).
The fertile soil, the legacy of the ancient volcano, continues to nourish the region.
The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow? The 7500 strong township of Narrabri now accommodates miners servicing the regional area.
