Day 1 (2/5/2017)
Left Cranbourne at 4.15PM.
Stopped at Wangaratta at 8.25PM to fill up with diesel & have dinner.
Arrived at Indi Bridge at midnight. Day 2 (3/5/2017)
Woke up to a chilly morning of -6C, but a beautiful view right on the Upper Murray River. It was a cold night but slept really soundly. Set up the generator while having a 10AM breakfast.
Went fishing & caught a nice Brown Trout first cast. Spent the rest of the day relaxing in the sun & enjoying several drinks. The generator did a fantastic job keeping everything running.
Before it started to get cold, gathered lots of firewood to set up a large bonfire to keep us warm. Took a while to get the fire started, but a few toilet tissues soaked in petrol fixed all that.
After eating the fresh trout & some stew for dinner, along with more drinks, settled in by the fire for several hours before climbing into bed.
Our only complaint about Indi Bridge was the European Wasps which were a real pest. If anyone has any suggestions on how to keep these things away,
please let us know! Day 3 (4/5/2017)
Left Indi Bridge for the short 30km trip to Colac Colac, staying at the lovely Colac Colac Caravan Park. Spent the afternoon setting up & taking a look around Corryong. Day 4 (5/5/2017)
Left at 9.10AM to go to Khancoban for our visit of the Snowy Hydro Upper Murray Power Station #2. We had a fantastic tour which was brilliantly led by Casey from Snowy Hydro whose thorough knowledge ensured that everyone left having all their questions answered.
A short drive down the road we had lunch at the Khancoban Alpine Inn. Reasonable prices & good food, so if you are in the area drop in there for a feed.
Caught up with friends Jean & David for a lovely roast dinner, drinks & stories. Day 5 (6/5/2017)
Up early again to go to the Snowy River Museum in Corryong. What a great exhibition it is; lots of rare artefacts & many items I had seen way back in my childhood which brought back memories. This is a must place to visit if you are in Corryong! Some areas of the
museum do not allow photos to be taken, so not as many photos as I wold have liked to have taken.
Drove up to Farrans Lookout for an incredible higher up view of the upper Murray River. This river that is so vast in it’s lower areas really is so extremely pretty where it starts out. There are numerous camping spots offering beautiful views & access along both the upper Murray River & the Nariel River. We have bookmarked all of these areas for a possible further visit.
Cooked a nice steak & mushroom dinner for Deb which was absolutely delightful if I say so myself!
Went to bed early to get plenty of sleep for the trip to Echuca tomorrow. Day 6 (7/5/2017)
Departed Corryong at 9.50AM.
Arrived at Echuca at 2.25PM.
Set up the caravan before picking up some supplies. As we were both exhausted, went over the border to the Rich River Golf Club in Moama for dinner. The food was brilliant, just like our visit there 4 years earlier. This is one place I can highly recommend for a wonderful meal at very reasonable prices. Lunch is even cheaper
if you want to save a few more dollars. Day 7 (8/5/2017)
Slept like a baby &woke up to a chilly morning & Deb’s lovely bacon & eggs for breakfast.
Went for a stroll through Echuca, with Deb sampling some wines (so whats new you say?) & purchasing a couple to quaff over the next few days. On the way back dropped into Beechworth Bakery for lunch (yum yum yum!) which never disappoints with their lovely food.
Arrived back at the caravan to put our legs up for a while. Deb cooked a lovely chicken roast for dinner which was absolutely delightful!
Spent the rest of the evening being a good Samaritan helping an elderly couple with their tv signal problem.
