Our Rental Car

DSCN5692

How wonderful it was to have this rental car for a period of twelve days! What did we do with it? On the pick-up day, Tuesday 9th April, we travelled in it around locally. The following day we started our big trip through the outback of New South Wales and from there into the state of Victoria, where we first stayed at Mildura and then we travelled on to Melbourne.

On Wednesday, 10th April, we started before sunrise. We went up Macquarie Pass. Macquarie Pass is an 8 kilometre long section of the Illawarra Highway passing through Macquarie Pass National Park. It was opened in 1898. It is a very winding steep road through this beautiful National Park. Peter knows this section well for he travelled up and down this path every day when he worked at Robertson Station which is at the top of the escarpment. We went through Robertson on the way to Moss Vale. Moss Vale was our first stop. We had a lovely breakfast up there on that Wednesday morning.

There’s one picture of Moss Vale Station. The train from Sydney stops at Moss Vale on its way to Melbourne! We took a few pictures in the vicinity of the station.  First of all we went to have some breakfast not far from the station where we stopped.

Inside the cafe where we had breakfast  were some remarkable posters. The service was very friendly. The owner agreed to have his picture taken by me.

    1. Well, Chrisstov, we had some very good coffee with our breakfast at IL PRANZO. Gave us energy to drive on towards the outback of NSW.
      I can’t remember though how many stupid things we were up to during the day.

    1. We did indeed very much enjoy our drive, Sheila. This was nearly half a year ago! We have great memories from this trip. I would not mind going on another long trip. 🙂

    1. Twenty years ago we went up by train to Moss Vale and took a picture in that park near the station. In that photo you see a lot of tulips, that means the picture was taken probably towards the end of September or beginning of October. Thanks for commenting, Ian.
