Left about 9:30 a.m. Had a good run to Swan Hill. The countryside was very flat, but quite green and quite a few trees in some spots. Lots of canola fields in places too. At Wood Wood we saw the Australian Cricket Bat Willow plantation.
Stopped at Lake Bolac to have a look at the Flying Boat Museum. Watched a 20 minute video explaining the history, then had a look at some artifacts in the museum which is underground in a bomb proof bunker, then the man took us to see an actual Catalina which is being restored. It was huge, in a huge brand new hangar. But not as huge as the Imperial or the Sunderlands. Lake Bolac was the repair depot for flying boats in the Second World War.
Had a late lunch at a little milk bar in Swan Hill then went round to the Riverside Caravan Park. Our site was right beside the river – very pretty. No en suite, but we got the key to the disabled bathroom which I had to myself while we were there.Set up the van and I had a nap. Went to the Federal Hotel for dinner. A very nice meal. I had Nachos and Bill had Fish and Chips. We also had herb bread which turned out to be 6 delicious freshly made bread rolls with herb butter.
