TUESDAY 30 SEPTEMBER TOCUMWAL TO HOME 280kms
We crossed over the Murray River and back into Victoria.
Today’s was a relatively short drive south. It was pleasant to travel through country that was progressively greener than we’d been used to.
Refuelled at Yea – 85cpl.
We were home by lunchtime.
Our house sitter was at uni, but had left us a welcome home note. The place was immaculate.
We commenced the arduous work of unloading the van and packing away the contents for however many months it would be before we headed off again. Trips would be so much better if they didn’t end in all the unpacking, sorting and cleaning!
