Newell Highway adVANture - Day Nine
Day 9: Tocumwal to Melbourne. 3 hours, 16 minutes, 270 km. Overall Grade: B+ - the trip was coming to an end. Left Town Beach camping area in Tocumwal and breakfasted at the Local Bakery on recommendation from a friend back home. The pies were good and they seemed to be doing a brisk little trade as we hunkered down from the early morning cold with a pie and hot tea. Once on the road it was a fairly straight drive along the highway heading into Melbourne, we stopped at a couple of strawberry farms but the season seemed to have come to an end but somehow we managed to pick-up some pretty damn good post seasonal strawberries for $4 a box.
