Day 13

  • Gundagai-Bowral
  • Distance from Darwin: 4,842.3km
  • Price of scones: priceless


That’s a picture of the hillside near where we stayed, just south of Gundagai. Compare with this:


… a photo which I took just before we left Darwin and, well, the enormity of the distance travelled on the Classic Road Trip is brought home to you, isn’t it?

Gundagai was blustery with a capital ‘brrr’. Luckily we were staying in beautifully heated chalet on a farm and Wolfy was cosy in a little cot.


I could tell you that we hit the town of Gundagai, going in all the pubs, talking to fella called Geoff about his grandkids. But we didn’t. This was a night for staying in with some chips and dips, and block of cheese and some crackers. I think we went to bed about 8pm.

Now we’ve made the shortish drive up the Hume Highway to Mittagong, near Bowral. I’m not going to lie to you – it’ll be an other early night. Gotta get up in the morning to go meet Greta at Sir Don Bradman’s childhood home. Can’t wait!
