Day 10: Melbourne to Awesome to Melbourne to Sydney
Last day on the road: Tied up all the loose ends, drove the van back to Awesome Campers, and spent a little time filming a few last videos before jumping the train into town.
A quick bite for lunch up the road from Spencer St Station and then hopped on the airport bus out to Tullamarine for an uneventful flight back to Sydney (and civilisation).
Trip Rating A+
There are some awesome spots and events along the Newell Highway and we wish we could have seen and experienced them all. A fabulous change to the regular coast trips from Sydney to Cairns or down South. Once you get into all the different little towns it certainly feels like you’re actually meeting real people and getting to experience a bit of what country life in Australia has to offer.
The Newell has a bit of everything; hospitality, untouched wilderness and the sense that you've really experienced a touch of the outback, some wide open country and a good yarn along the way. And isn’t that what makes a road trip? Would we do it again you ask? In a heartbeat! But... for the time being it’s over and out from the PMV crew.
Till next time ☺
