It was an early start this morning. we left Newcastle at 03:39 am and travelled through the dark heading south.
Newcastle to Wangarratta
over 700 kilometres in just over 8 hours.
the first leg of the journey was driven by the man of the family, we passed through Sydney with no problems at all. . . .actually it was busier on the freeway
the first stop was Sutton forest just south of Sydney
for a quick breakie at Macca's
it was Mrs T's turn to take over the wheel, for her first drive of the Prado / Bridget combination
travelling as the sun came up
the second stop was just south of Gundagai
were Marc took back over the wheel
Just after one pm we crossed the NSW / Victorian border
and arrived at Painters Island caravan park, Wangarratta.
setting up for the night took around 15mins. . . . gotta love Bridget
the lovely surrounds of the Painters Island caravan park
one of the historic hotels in Wangarratta
another gorgeous historic building in the heart of Wangarratta

and had no issue's with either the car or the van
