Day One: Depart Melbourne to Mount Gambier
Departing 8.00AM, we head towards Albury, where we stop for lunch before continuing onto the Old Gundagai Rd and Olympic Hwy/A41.
We shall visit Lambing Flat Chinese Tribute Garden in Young NSW. The development of the gardens began in 1992 and was established to recognise the contribution of the Chinese community to the settlement of Young in the 1860s, and to the ongoing contributions of the Chinese community to Australia as a Nation.
It’s a long day travelling of over 655 kilometres today. Soon after we arrive at our motel, we freshen up for dinner at a local restaurant.
Day Two: Mount Gambier
This morning soon after our breakfast, we travel onto the stunning Cowra Japanese Garden and Cultural Centre and enjoy a coffee or lunch at the Japanese Garden Cafe.
As we continue to Australia’s World Peace Bell, ring the bell and listen to an audio presentation which explains the significance of the bell and its association with Cowra.
We soon visit the Lachlan Valley Railway Heritage Centre and explore our railway history. Enjoy a stroll back in time on a guided Cowra Heritage Walk/Drive By to see Cowra’s most beautiful heritage buildings and sites.
We then head to Wyangala Dam, the second major dam for irrigation in NSW with a spectacular height of 85 meters and 1,370 meters length. When construction began in 1928, Wyangala Dam helped drive the economic development of the Lachlan Valley as a major food-producing region. Today the dam continues to support irrigated agriculture across the valley around Cowra.
We’ll now head back to our motel to freshen up for dinner
Day Three: Mount Gambier to Melbourne via Great Ocean Road
