Thursday 23rd February - Young to Yackandandah

This is the last leg of this trip.   Our route today took us back through Cootamundra and Gundagai, through Tarcutta and then Holbrook. Holbrook is famous for the submarine in its main street.  It is HMAS Otway.

We continued on through Albury and across the border to Wodonga.  About 27 kms past Wodonga we came to Yackandandah, or Yack.  Actually we took the wrong turn and went the less convenient way from Wodonga we later discovered.
We arrived at the Yackandandah Holiday Park.  Like all the other parks we have stayed at on this trip it was a very pretty park.

The lady showed us the site and said she would come down soon with the paperwork, and the key for the ensuite - which was currently unlocked.  After we had got ourselves settled we went up into the town for a look around.  No sign of the lady by this stage.  Yackandandah is a very pretty town with lots of trees.  Many of the buildings are old, but well reserved.
We decided to have lunch at a little cafe called Java@Yack.
When we went back to the park we stopped by the manager's house to fill in the relevant paperwork - the lady's husband said he'd come down later.
For dinner we decided to try the Star Hotel.  We had quite a nice meal.
