11th October 2019 – Heading South

Distance: 443 km

A Spring trip to south of the border. No precise plans other than a visit to Phillip Island and Ballarat.

After a couple of day spent in Canberra visiting family headed off on a fairly long drive to Myrtleford in Victoria mostly along the Hume Highway.

Camper Canberra

Stopped at Holbrook for lunch and the obligatory look at their submarine.


Crossed the Murray into Victoria about four hours after leaving Canberra.


Arrived in Myrtleford at about 3.30pm and discovered the caravan park was only a few hundred metres from the town centre. Also for the first (and probably last) time had an ensuite site with its own toilet and shower. It was actually a very nice quiet park.

Myrtleford Holiday Park

Went for a walk to look at the town followed signs to a memorial but only found a horse trough.


It is definitely not warm, I think the maximum temperature today was about 19C. If this keeps up it will be a very short trip.
