Bega to Baromi

Its been a few days since our last update, we are now well into Victoria and are aiming for Bendigo on Wednesday Morning. The awning install at Bega didn’t happen due to uncertainty with the installer there, so we decided to move on and phone ahead to organise a different supplier, so off to Bendigo we go.

We did stay in Bega for a couple nights, checked out the Bega Cheese factory, lazed around, caught up on some washing and shopping.
We found a nice flat quiet bit of land down near the river and jockey club.

Jayson was keen to get out for a bit of skateboarding while we did our chores

The next day we went for a look at the Bega Cheese Factory before checking out the local shopping centre

The following day we packed up and headed for Eden, our first stop was at the whale museum, but it was a little disappointing. The Museum part of the building was smaller than our shed, you could see every thing from the door so we didn’t bother going in and saved our $20 and bought the boys treats instead

After a stroll up the main drag we drove down the steep hill into Eden South where we pulled up for lunch and a look at the boats at the wharf.

After lunch we head back out onto the Pacific Hwy with a quick stop at the border for a photo

From Bega well into Vic is mainly forest country, fairly hilly and a pretty ordinary road to push a heavy vehicle through. But the other option was to head through Jindabyne which I would assume is more hilly and windy. We had intended to stop at Lakes Entrance for the night, but as we drove into town there were signs telling us that camping on council land was not permitted, the carvan parks were too small so we drove on through. Shame because it looked like a nice town, quite large and very touristy. We travelled for some distance before pulling in to a rest area not far short of Sale. We had the area to ourselves and stayed till late morning while the kids rode thier bikes and played.

Everyone was belted in ready to go, I did my usual check around the bus to make sure every thing was secure and ready to drive off, when I saw an Echidna come out of the bushes and start digging for ants. I went and got the camera and the others. It was not at all bothered by our presence

Our next stop was a little towm called Baromi, we stopped there for a late lunch but decided we would stay the night. The park was great for the kids with a skate park for Jayson to ride his board and a huge area of play equipment for Jake to climb on.
