A QUICK CATCHUP
Sooooooooo, it's nearly three weeks since we last updated our travels! No excuses, just been wrapped up in the experiences. In fact, looking back through the photos and memories it's crazy how many experiences have been gained and how much activity has occurred. It's a simple fact about the travel life, it makes for a very full lifestyle!
So we last left you with the wet cave system at Buchan. Since then we've dallied through Lakes Entrance, discovered the Snowy River country following the river from Orbost down through to its estuary near Marlo. We free camped at Cann River where we ventured to Point Hicks, the first point of mainland Australia that was spotted by Captain Cook! No reward for guessing what stands there now. We baked (ourselves) on the beaches of Mallacoota and explored the local Genoa Peak and Genoa Falls.
We crossed the border into NSW, now the fifth jurisdiction of our lap. We explored the stunning and pristine country around Wonboyn and Disaster Bay. We foolishly hiked the Grade 5 trail to the top of Mount Imlay. ⛰😅 We explored the whaling history around Eden including the unique relationship with Killer Whales 🐳 We passed through the quaint and picturesque holiday makers retreats of Pambula and Merrimbula and parked the bus up at Cobargo.
From here we bundle into the Prado and slowly wound up the steep switch backs to make our assault on the alpine country, camping in Jindabyne and hiking Australia's highest peak, Mount Kosciuszko through my old favourite Aussie ski grounds at Thredo.
Then we tackled the Australian Capital Territory and the various national treasures of Canberra.
We've since descended back through more switch backs to the stunning beaches and bays tucked in around South Durras and Batemans Bay where we'll slowly edge back south to the bus before continuing north into Sydney. 👏👏 That's the quick version! Now hopefully snaps of each adventure will follow! 😅
Here we leave you with a sunset at Lakes Entrance, Victoria before we headed off. 😍
