Cooma and Jindabyne

We had a leisurely breakfast and loading up of the car and then shopping for a few provisions, including a tracksuit for Donald, before heading south for the Snowy Mountains.

First stop was Bredbo for coffee and croissants with honey for what turned out to be lunch, rather than morning tea.

Only about 20 minutes down the road was the Hydro Discovery centre at Cooma. This was much smaller than I expected it to be. It was informative though and had quite a few displays. They seemed to be quite old though because one about cloud-seeding that I found interesting was talking about 2009 like it was years in the future – bit scary since it was 2016!

Next stop was the historic centre of town, with the Courthouse and the Goal (which is still used a such now):

We drove up to Nanny Goat Hill Lookout – not that there’s much to see up there:

Then it was onwards to Jindabyne. We checked in to our accommodation and had a bit of a rest before having some bread rolls for dinner. We waited for it to get a bit closer to sunset so that I could get some photos of Lake Jindabyne and the township at dusk:
