After a very relaxing Christmas at Harrietville (thanks Michelle and John) we restarted the road trip with a visit to Mt Buffalo. The weather was perfect for amazing views from Echo Point lookout.
Then we visited the Old Galleries trail. It has incredible granite boulders that the trail crawls through.
Last stop was The Hump walk past Cathedral Rock. The trail was OK, but the heat of the afternoon made it a gruelling journey. The view was worth it! We cooled off in the river at the bottom of the mountain.
Next day was Mt Beauty, which is not much of a bump but it does have some great stops. Mermaid Pool was a a good swim hole and the carpark didn’t mention anything about no camping so we stayed the night.
Bogong Village is a hidden gem. There is a short trail around Lake Guy and a wonderful riverside picnic area to refresh in the cold water.
After that Falls Creek was disappointing, lots of dead trees and not a lot of apline heath.
We carried on to Anglers Rest, a free campground on a grassy river bank. It was so good we stayed 2 nights. Even blew up the floaties and coasted down the river.
Tambo River crossing made another enjoyable stop. We have been amazed that these free campgrounds have plenty of room over the Xmas / New Year period.
So we head back to Melbourne now for a couple of days while we wait for our ferry sailing to Tasmania, very excited!
