Canberra to Rutherglen

Friday 11 September 2015

Weather forecast was good today - 6 to 19 degrees and sunny in Canberra, and 8 to 19 degrees and mainly sunny in Rutherglen.

We were packed up and on the road by 8:45 am today for a 380 km trip to Rutherglen. The road from Canberra to Yass leaves a bit to be desired - single lane and quite bumpy in places. But once out on the Hume Highway it was dual carriage-way all the way to the turn-off to Rutherglen. The traffic was quite light with very few trucks, which made it a quite enjoyable drive.

We stopped for a coffee in a rest area just south of Gundagai and stopped again for fuel and lunch at Holbrook. We arrived at Rutherglen at about 2:45 pm and booked in for one night. After setting up Di did a few domestic duties while David paid a visit to Campbell's Winery for a mixed carton of their best wines. Just after David arrived at the winery a bus load of people from a retirement home arrived - David thinks that he bought more wine than the whole bus load.

No photos today.
