Driving Warrnambool to Wangaratta — photos

Today’s objective was to drive from Warrnambool to Wangaratta, looping through the middle of Victoria and visiting Ballarat and Bendigo.

After two weeks holidaying in Tasmania with my family, I was headed for home — more than 2,500 kilometres away! My family flew home from Hobart, and I was going to take the long route home to Brisbane.

I had driven the western roads of Tasmania from Hobart to Devonport, via Strahan, two days ago.  I had then spent a sleepless night crossing Bass Strait on the Spirit of Tasmania, followed by a day exploring the Great Ocean Road, spending the night at Warrnambool.

Today’s objective was to get to Wangaratta where I would spend the night, before spending a day in the Victorian High Country and finishing at Lake Jindabyne.

Once again, I did not take the shortest route, preferring to loop through the middle of Victoria, visiting Ballarat and Bendigo. Following are a few photos from the day’s travel.
