Coonabarabran to home

Today was a long day. Firstly, getting up at 6am to have coffee and then go for a walk on the property where my sister lives. It’s beautiful there, and I would love to have more time to go wandering on some of the walks it offers. The light was just beautiful, too: Then it […]

Along the road to Gundagai

We packed up our stuff and left Jindabyne and headed for Adaminaby (for brekky) and then on to Yarrangobilly Caves in Kosciuszko National Park. It took us about 2 hours from Jindabyne to get to the caves. The last section of about 6km is gravel road. We just missed the 10.30 tour but booked on […]

Kosciuszko National Park

Today was our last day here in the Snowy Mountains, so we went for some more walks at Thredbo, and later at Charlotte Pass. We didn’t actually get to the park until 11am, and then headed straight to Thredbo. We went on a bobsled ride – yes, even I went on a bobsled! Not really […]

Dalgety is an historic little village which was once almost made the Australian capital. It’s also […]

Conquering Mt Kosciuszko

We got up early and made our lunch and packed our backpacks and then had brekky and coffee and took off to Thredbo. We wanted to get there a bit early to book a tour to go to the top of Mt Kosciuszko with, since they were only $10 more than doing it on your […]

Jindabyne to Charlotte Pass

We got off to a late start because Donald hadn’t changed his watch or phone over to NSW time and kept telling me the wrong time. It was supposed to be OK because the plan was to go to Dalgety for lunch at a winery and just do a little round trip and exploration of […]

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 […]

Karuah to Goulburn

We decided to take the scenic route from Karuah to Goulburn – instead of freeways and motorways to the west of Sydney, we went via Wisemans Ferry. This used to be the main route north out of Sydney to Newcastle, until early last century. It’s very windy, slow and beautiful. Unfortunately, there’s very few places […]
