HDP: Travelling Around Australia, Week 2

Our second week has been challenging with high winds and a fair bit of rain just to make things interesting 🙂 We’ve travelled roughly 1,000 km (621 miles) so far, along the coast road and have now crossed the border to Victoria.

Just now we’re free camping by ourselves and loving listening to the pitter patter of the rain on our caravan roof. We’ve walked a couple of kilometres in the rain to the town centre of Yarram (which is bigger than I anticipated) and treated myself to a bottle of Tia Maria, which is going down very nicely making the pitter patter even more appealing 🙂

Yarram is an isolated town with a population of roughly 2,000 in the southeast of Gippsland.

Noteworthy locations along the way: Ben Boyd National Park was truly amazing and Lakes Entrance, a fishing paradise port in eastern Victoria,

So, here are some photos of what we’ve seen this week:

As we’re travelling around Australia for X amount of months, I’ll keep the Hump Day Post (HDP) (on Wednesdays) for our journey and will continue to take part in the Weekly Photo Challenge (on Saturdays) – where possible. I’ll repeat this every week, just in case you’ve just joined me 🙂

About Retired2Travel

My passion has been for many, many years landscape photography so when the chance came up to retire early, in order to travel, I took it! It made sense then to marry the two (travel and photography) and create this blog. I hope you enjoy it :)

    Loved the creepy walk and the soldier crabs. I can just picture you sipping Tia Maria whilst listening to the rain. I hope the wind has died down. We had a beautiful day here with a slightly crisp autumn morning then lovely sunshine. More good days to come. Ben Boyd NP looks pretty special. Keep them coming.
