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:
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:
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.
