28 September – Sunday
Another clear, sunny day, but a bit cooler than yesterday – only in the low 20s today.
We left Wagga Wagga and headed for Rutherglen, less than three hours travelling time, via Henty which is the header capital of Australia. Lots of wheat farms in this region, plus the never ending canola. We had a short distance to travel on the Hume Highway before heading east through Albury to Corowa, then on to Rutherglen.
Rutherglen is noted for its red wines, so we may stay here for a few nights! This town isn’t all that big and has a small caravan park on the edge of a dam – with compulsory ducks, of course. We just had a wander around the town and inspected all the pie shops (three of them, and award winning!) in the main street. We obtained our wine route map and are now ready to toss a coin in the morning and set out.
