Back to Genoa and heading home

Tuesday, 1st of Spring, we departed Metung and headed for Genoa via the scenic route following the Tambo River up to Bruthen then across to Nowa Nowa on the Bruthen-Buchan Rd.  Was much more scenic and quiet than the Hwy and this is a pic looking over the the Tambo River. Just stopped in the middle of the road, no traffic, took pic and on our way, couldn’t do that on the Hwy 😉 :

Back on the Princes Hwy stopped for morning tea at a Rest Stop on Hospital Creek, Tostaree and found a section of the East Gippsland Rail Trail that goes from Bairnsdale to Orbost. Here are the pics:

If you do stop, or are travelling through Genoa, the Genoa Falls is about 6km south on Hwy and is well worth a visit. Is a tad hard to find and easier to use these GPS Co-ords  37°28’52.0″S    149°33’16.5″E   or this Google Map shows the route from the Genoa Wayside Rest Area to the falls.  And a pic of the Falls:

We stayed at the Genoa Wayside Rest Area for 2 nights and made our way to home at Tathra on Thursday 3rd Sept.
Here is a video of the Genoa Wayside Rest Area and for more info on Genoa click HERE.

The final morning was quite chilly, but warm in van due to the miracle of the Diesel Heater as is attested to in these pics:

And a closing pic from Genoa just up the road from the Rest Area:

Old farm house in Genoa - lots of character!

Well that’s it for another Wallaby Wander.

Next trip is ……. who knows? tomorrow? next year?

Will let you know when we do 😉

Thanks for reading.
