Oz Trip - Day 162

Day 162 – 10/10/2012 – Bathurst to Walcha

Well you can't go through Bathurst without doing a hot lap, well as hot a lap that you can do in a turbo diesel 4wd towing a camper with a 60kph speed limit! On the way out of town be did a detour to Mount Panorama for a quick spin around the race track.

From Bathurst we took some back roads to Ilford, Mudgee and Merriwa to end up in Scone and back on the New England Highway. It was a scenic drive but very hilly.

Because we were now back on to familiar roads, the feeling that the holiday was almost over was starting to set in.

We arrived in Walcha at about 5:30pm. It was a nice little van park just out of the centre of the town.
