Monday 23rd January 2017


With the lamb shanks slow-cooking for dinner we headed out for our final touring drive.

We crossed the Hume Highway & drove through the villages of Colo Vale, Hill Top, Thirlmere, Picton, Balmoral, Buxton & Bargo.

At Hill Top we did the Cave Creek walk, a 2 1/2km walk to a gully & huge rock formation.

We checked out the Thirlmere Lakes National Park. Then found out that Picton was the biggest village/town in the area.  
The history of Bargo states that the first recorded sightings by whites of Wombats, Lyrebirds & Koalas was here in 1798.

Our first stop for the day

A tiny trickle of water keeps the

Geoff spotted this fungi on our return walk

It was an enjoyable half-day out. We thought it would be longer, but the cave walk was shorter than expected, despite our lingerings there, and we made it back to Bowral for a late lunch. So, we saved a few bucks by not buying a feed, but I missed out on getting a pie. Hmmm...
