Fwd: Day 3 Gulgong to Canberra via Bathurst

Today we headed off from Gulgong and caught up with Kathy & Jason & the kids near Mudgee.
From Mudgee we headed toward Canberra via Bathurst .... for quick :( lap of Mount Panorama ... as you do.
We had lunch on top of the Mountain. The kids thought it was great sitting up on the concrete barrier right up at Skyline and eat their lunch.
We arrived in Canberra around 530pm in a very central Caravan Park - The Canberra motor village. Tomorrow we'll  head over to the War memorial.
The weather forecast is looking good for the next few days. So glad to have power and warm up inside the van.









Lap of Mount Panorama

A quick lap of Mount Panorama with the Patrol and the Jayco on the back. I think the lap record is safe.

Day 2 Glenn Innes to Gulgong

Action Kids !!

Day 1 - Home to Glenn Innes

We left home around 430pm leaving a very disappointed dog. She sat under the car or with her head in the door until the last of us got in. :(

Night 1 was a free stay in Glenn Innes without power or camp fire. 5 deg in the morning inside the van. That's ok. Canberra will be colder !!

A quick and easy breakfast and we're on our way to Gulgong.
