We have stopped at the twin border towns of Albury/Wodonga for 3 days as we have a breather and spend a bit of time before heading to Melbourne, and drive onto the ship to Tasmania. It’s amazing how big these towns are, and coming from Western Australia realise how much of WA’s population is concentrated in Perth. We spent time exploring both towns (as well as the odd bit of shopping). On another day went on a drive to visit as Strawberry Winery and bought a very yummy bottle of Strawberry Liqueur. After that, we drive onto Mt Beauty which is on the edge of the Victorian Alps. It was only 30 kilometres from the ski resort town of Falls Creek which (unfortunately) we did not go on to.
We are glad to be in drier areas now as there is no humidity with the warmth, which is a pleasant change for us all. No doubt as we move into cooler areas, we’ll miss the warmer weather (no pleasing some people eh?).
