Derwent Valley, Tasmania to Harvey Bay, Queensland, Return

Our first Day on the Mainland – Sunday April 19, 2015

After tossing and bumping across Bass Strait on the Spirit of Tasmania last night we were greeted by a bleak, windy, rainy Melbourne Sunday morning.  The blessing was that ours was the first line of vehicles to disembark.

Disembarking from Spirit of Tasmania into Melbourne this morning

The drive out of Melbourne was amazing due to the early hour and it being a Sunday morning – hardly saw a car on the road.  Driving north through Victoria took us through country which is looking sadly drought ridden – the same sight met us once we crossed the border into New South Wales which is looking terribly dry.

Hard to believe it is the same country we traversed last September when it was looking magnificent under wheat and canola as far as the eye could see.

An uneventful drive found us in Wagga Wagga before 1.00p.m. which allowed us ample time to wander the banks of the Murrimbidgee River which runs by the rear of the caravan park – our home for tonight.  Presently the river is looking most tranquil – some desperately needed rains may put a change to that!
