1. MT VICTORIA TO CROOKWELL 188km (2.23hr) Historic Crookwell buildings

A rude awakening to the morning, as our beautiful little boy insisted on bringing up the yogurt from the night before. Tip, don’t risk dairy products in your car fridge (we have a 40lt auto fridge in the back)

The new car smell is now officially gone, but entering the beauty of the Historic Crookwell area this was easy to forget. The town is full of gorgeous historic buildings. We took a special liking to the abandoned old buildings on the outskirts of town as below: wooden one was near 3519 Grabben Gullen rd
