Road trip – Echuca, Pt 1

Another month, another road trip. I do however fear it’s our last for at least a little while. This time we were heading to historic Echuca Moama. About a 3.5-hour drive from Melbourne. Echuca sits on the Murray River, the gateway to N.S.W. We had hoped being further north, the weather might be a touch warmer than it has been here in Melbourne lately and we might miss all the rain heading that way too. We did miss most of the rain, eventually, but it was still quite cold.


As per usual, we had planned to make a few stops on our way to our destination. Our first stop was Maldon. While we had extensively explored this area a few years back, we didn’t find this area of the North British Mines – and we were so close. We found it this time, in the cold, the wet and the rain. Misty fog and winds made for a slightly uncomfortable morning exploring the area.

As you can see everything was pretty wet, as were our feet and coats. We headed off to Maldon to find something hot to eat and drink…we found a yummy fish and chips and coffee that kept us going until we managed to get to Echuca, booked into our cabin we would call home for the week and unpack.

Our next stop was the Masonic Hall to set up for that night’s portrait workshop I was running for the Echuca Moama Photography Club…but more on that in another post.
