WHERE ARE WE NOW?….The result was a decision to return to Eden and ….

Returning from our year in Tasmania we arrived back in Melbourne on March 4 and drove through to Lakes Entrance in rather rainy conditions. As the coming weekend was the Labour Day holiday everywhere is booked out so we managed to get 2 nights until Friday and moved further East to a free camp on the Snowy River.  From there we moved on to Cann River and then Genoa, taking a trip into Mallacoota for lunch, fuel and gas.  On to Eden and the Discovery Caravan Park; leaving Eden we had a noticeable exhaust noise and chose to stop at Bega and investigate.  Turning out to be a cracked manifold we were waiting for parts when the Covid19 crisis started to really have an effect. A decision was then taken to return to Eden to see if we could remain for the duration and here we are for as long as it takes (see Posts)
