Myrtleford, Victoria

White waratah, Myrtleford

Sun 18 to Tues 20 October
We arrived at our little home away from home, outside Murtleford township, at about 7:30pm. What a lovely spot! The self- contained cottage house, we stayed in, was perfect for us. It was on a lush green farm, complete with frog noises. it was a very cute, cosy and comfortable cottage with everything we needed.

The next morning, after a leisurely start, we made our way to the bike track and commenced our 60km return ride... from Myrtleford to Bright and back.

We thought of Jeni when we reached Porepunkah. What a beautiful place!

It was a lovely place to ride. All flat and sealed for many kilometres. The whole track is 96km long. We did the last 30km portion that ended at Bright. After a good rest and a lovely lunch at Bright, we started on the journey back to Myrtleford. I thought 60km was a bit long! Maybe 40kms would have done me nicely! All in all, a lovely day.

On Tuesday morning, we took our time to pack up and drove to Beechworth for lunch.

From there, we travelled home to Canberra. We stopped at Gundagai. I thought it was a very long way! My sister-in-law has family down that way. What a long drive she has from Sydney, to visit them!
