High Country 2015-16

Victorian High Country 2015-16

We left Whyalla on Saturday 26th December. Austin, Charlotte and I with TRAKTA and the caravan. Andrew S left just before us and we met up with him on the road. Fons, coming from Adelaide, caught us at Morgan.

Zuzana and family arrived late evening in Robinvale. Pam and Alvin had left days earlier and were already in Mansfield. David and Amanda were a day behind us and we would catch them in Mansfield. Vaughan and Cathy were leaving from Adelaide but sadly their car expired on the freeway and their trip was over.

For our group it was a leisurely 2 day drive following the Murray River around to Mansfield.

Craigs Hut

It’s the first time I’ve been here when there is no-one around. Late in the day and they had all left. I took full advantage of the lack of people and the glorious clouds…..
