We left Wagga Wagga at about 9 am in unpleasant weather. Traffic on the Sturt Highway was very heavy and we had to pull over to let trucks pass. There seems to be a strange entry from the Sturt Highway to the Hume Highway if you are heading south. We headed down the Hume and stopped about 11 am for a break. We had lunch at Miss Marple’s Café in Holbrook.
We then continued down the highway with the intention of spending the night at Benalla Showgrounds. However, the Benalla turn-offs were blocked by police due to a serious road accident. We kept going in driving rain to Euroa. The Euroa Caravan Park was a pleasant surprise. It is being upgraded and has very nice amenities and a new camp kitchen. The roadways had been asphalted the day before. We had a nice big site right on the river, although it was a bit damp underfoot (should that be underwheel?). There were lots of ducks. We went for a short walk and then settled inside for the night. We were cold and tired but it was warm in the van with the heater on.
