Sydney – Stage 2 of our Australian visit

After leaving the grandchildren in Melbourne, we began the drive north to Sydney. That's when I downloaded a Sydney travel app that gave us information about a series of routes from Melbourne to Sydney. Each route explored different aspects of the country between the two cities and we were so attracted by the Heritage Route that we decided to follow this instead of driving direct. This meant that we had to change later plans, but more about that in another post.

The original Heritage Route takes about six days, but we decided to cut it down to three to save some time. The travel app gave us all the information we needed including driving directions, estimated times and things to see and do along the way.

Day one – Melbourne – Bendigo - Echuca-Moama

Visited the Bendigo Gold museum, I never knew that so much gold was mined in Australia. Bendigo is a really nice town with 1900's buildings and cobbled streets. The app then took us on to Echuca-Moama on the banks of the Murray River. We took a trip on a paddle steamer and had a great meal. The travel app was a great help in finding the restaurant and a really nice and reasonable hotel.

Day two - Echuca-Moama - Yarrawonga-Mulwala - Albury-Wodonga

A really nice scenic route wandering through apple orchards, vineyards and fields. All along the route are farms offering free tastings of their produce, especially the wines and some great cheeses. The app said that there are some good golf courses in the area. But, we didn't have time for a round – pity! According to the travel app guide, Albury-Wodonga was an important river port and a staging point for many of the new immigrants who arrived in Australia's early days.

Day Three - Albury-Wodonga – Canberra – Sydney

The last day was quite a long haul. The app told us that it was some 600 Kilometers, but we decided to go for it. We left the hotel really early and started out for Canberra. After about 150 kilometers and after reading the travel guide app, we decided that the distance was just two long so we got the route planner app to plot us a route directly to Sydney. The route was really nice. According to the app, there are over 140 vineyards' along the way and we must have stopped at 100 of them for a taste because by the time we arrived at Sydney – I was quite \\"merry\\".

About 60 K from Sydney, I used the Sydney guide app to find a good hotel, checked to see if they had a vacancy and booked a room on line. We arrived after 10.00 p.m., checked in, showered and went out for a meal in a nearby restaurant recommended by the Sydney app.

Anyway, more about Sydney in my next post and until then – goodnight!
