Day 37 – Wagga Wagga to Euroa

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.

Day 36 – Forbes to Wagga Wagga

We left Forbes about 9 am and headed for West Wyalong. We stopped at 955 Poppet Head Rest Area in Wyalong for coffee in the park. It was a nice stop set back from the road in a park setting with a big Mine Poppet Head structure. Then it was on to Temora for lunch at Lake Centenary. Only a day stop but very nice. The lake is used for V8 boat racing, water skiing, etc. Then it was down through Old Junee to Wagga Wagga Big 4 for the night where we had pizza left over from last night for dinner. We are both sick of travelling so far each day and are both feeling very tired. The roads are not wonderful. There is still a lot of water by the roadside and lots of long wide loads on the road and we seem to be having to pull over often to let trucks past.
