WARRNAMBOOL TO TAILEM BEND 518km (6hr)


1. WARRNAMBOOL TO WIND FARM
56km (43min) 1850 Macarthur/Hawkesdale rd – Macarthur Wind Farm sits about 16 km east of Macarthur, between Hamilton and Warnambool in southwestern Victoria.

We took a detour off our plan to find some wind farms. Spanning about 5,500 hectares of freehold agricultural land, it crosses three properties that are predominately used for sheep and cattle grazing. We also discovered a great waterfall and picnic spot (Nigretta Falls -37.6558 141.924606). 

2. WIND FARM TO NIGRETTA FALLS 57km (42min)Nigretta Falls, Nigretta Falls Access Rd, Hamilton VIC 3300

The drive took us through countryside dotted with massive twisted trunks of some grand old gum trees, seaming almost prehistoric in presence.

3. NIGRETTA FALLS TO TAILEM BEND 392km (1.15hr) Motel River Bend –  39 Princes Hwy, Tailem Bend SA 5260

Spent the night at the motel River Bend. Was so adamant about finishing all our fruit before crossing the border (never eaten so much fruit)……found carrots when we got to the motel….oops
