Diary for On On Home around Australia

Week 440 - Jugiong

2017-12-23 to 2017-12-29

Seven days ago, we were camped at Moss Vale, a yuppy little town next to Bowral.  On the Saturday night, we strolled down town to the local distillary, known as the Taphouse, owned by the Highland Brewery.  The joint had only been open six weeks and was doing a roaring trade with beer tastings.  All the beers I tasted were excellent and I finished off the night with an English style beer known as Red Ale.  You could not have asked for better.

The local constabulary had set up a RBT just outside Moss Vale Showgrounds, although I had only had a couple the night before, the RID was on the left, we departed right, our destination Gunning, a quiet spot beside the river for Christmas.  We were the only ones there.

We had a knock on our door Christmas morning.  A fellow Highway Wanderer invited us to his daughter's house for Christmas dinner, how could we refuse.  We sat around a lovely decorated table with all the trimmings of the Christmas fare.  A very enjoyable family afternoon.

Our next stop, only 46 kms down the road was Yass.  A town we have visited several times and each time it has shown a different character.  The last time it being flooded.  We had finally escaped the hustle and bustle of the East Coast of Australia and could now make our way steadily South West to Adelaide.

We are now camped at Jugiong.  Another place revisited and we intend to celebrate New Years Eve at The Sir George, Jugiong.

So we lift our glasses to you all and hope you have a Happy New Year and an enjoyable 2018.
