Bomaderry to Rosebud in Victoria
Sunday 16th March 2014
We left home at 8.45 this morning and drove down the Princes Highway through Milton Ulladulla and Batemans Bay where we had morning tea on the north side of the Clyde River. A marathon was in progress and there were a lot of people running and cycling.
Onwards then through Moruya Narooma to Cobargo where we had lunch and a walk around town. Not too much happening as it is Sunday.
From here we continued on through Bega and Eden then crossed the State border into Victoria before stopping for the night in a lovely free rest area camping ground at Genoa.
We left Genoa at 8.15 and continued on down the Highway to Cann River where we stopped for a walk around this quite small town – it didn’t take us long to have a look at everything.
Onwards to Orbost where we again had a good look up and down the main street. It is very quiet here.
We drove on to Lakes Entrance where we stopped near the towns main beach and had lunch before having a good walk around and visited a few Op shops and bought some second hand books. It is quite windy here just like every other time we have been here. Took a photo of the in-let into the Great Lakes system.
After leaving Lakes Entrance we drove on to Bairnsdale which is quite a large town then on to our overnight stopping place 30 km west of there.
Day 3 Sale to Rosebud. After leaving Sale on Tuesday morning we drove to Rosedale where we stopped to purchase a couple of birthday cards, some bread and meat. Onwards then through Traralgon, bypassing Morwell then leaving the motorway to have a look around Moe. Continuing on we pulled off the motorway again to have a look at Drouin before cutting across country via a few back roads through Modella, to Bayles where we had lunch in a park.
Onwards through Koo-wee-rup, Pearcedale, and joined the Peninsular Motorway down to Rosebud where we have camped for the night in a foreshore camping ground.
We had a short walk along the beachfront (Port Phillip Bay), and noticed a cargo ship leaving Melbourne so took a photo. There are quite a few beach huts along the foreshore as well.
