Nov 27, 2017 - Day 3 Foster to Yarram

Day Description - light rain when we woke but it cleared up as we road out in a small peloton of Ian, Gaylene, David L and me. A number of climbs along the way to the marshalling point. Gaylene and David continued and Ian and I stopped at the rest area. The wind was cool and sky overcast but no rain. Rest area was at a high tech dairy. Very interesting to see the cows auto milked on a huge carousel. Tricky marshalling point but with the help from the police it all went well Left my snack food in my other bag ... no food!.. until lunch. But...

A beautiful day, sunny & in the mid-20s, just the kind of day I’ve been waiting for to go to the Tarra Bulga National Park which is only about 25 km north of Yarram although it took a while to get there because the road is a narrow, winding single-track for most of the way. The park is one of the last remnants of Cool Temperate Rainforest in Victoria, dominated by Mountain Ash trees (the tallest flowering trees in the world), ancient Myrtle Beech trees & beautiful Tree Fern gullies. There are lots of lovely walking tracks, most of which are...

A pleasant sunny day so I drove to Port Albert to sample their award-winning Fish & Chips for lunch. It was excellent – 2 Rock Flathead fillets & some of the best chips I’ve had for a long time. Not too many either although there were plenty of seagulls round wanting to share with me. Port Albert is a very interesting little place. It was established in 1841 so was one of the first ports in Victoria. According to an information board, (written by my cousin Esme), by the early 1850s ¾ of the population of Eastern Victoria lived within a 4...

Spent the morning washing & cleaning up then looked around Yarram in the afternoon. Went to Holy Trinity Church where Mum & Dad were married then upstairs at Wynne’s Buildings which doesn’t look like it’s changed much since Mum & Dad’s reception there in 1933.

At Esme’s again before 9:00 when we went in her car to the beach house to meet up with Ron & Yvonne. We all went in Ron’s Nissan to Seaspray then to Golden Beach where their son Cameron has recently bought a beach house. Poked around then had lunch at the house. Back to Mann’s Beach then to Esme’s where she loaded me up with family stuff to look through.

We toyed with the idea of staying another day in Lakes Entrance but decided instead to continue on our travels heading closer to Phillip Island. We traveled through Bairnsdale, Sale and into Yarram. This looked like a cute little town so we decided to stop for the night. We found a lovely little caravan park just on the edge of town where the van park owners lived in an amazing heritage home on site which used to be the doctors residence many years ago. Oh how I would have loved to see inside this gorgeous home!! We very quickly parked the...
