Victoria Day 19

Day 19

This morning the rain seems to have moved on and it looks like the sun will be back. Today we have breakfast and soon after head for the Pioneer settlement which is a bit like Sovereign Hill in Ballarat.

It has lot’s of old buildings including a school house, Dentist, Blacksmiths, local pub from back in the day and lot’s of machinery including a Glasgow Tractor.

We also get a ride in a horse drawn wagon and then we are taken on a drive in an original Dodge car.

The horse is a beautiful Clydesdale and pulls the wagon along easily and at his own pace.

We head in to the olde shop and meet a fantastic lady who demonstrates an original record player from back in the day and an old harpsichord which still worked fine.

Later we take a cruise down the river on an original paddle steamer PYAP and see some amazing house boats and homes as we cruise along.


Afterwards we have a caravan chat with the two couples next to us who have the same van as us but one of them is the new model and we all discuss the merits of it.
Tomorrow we will leave this site and town due to this weekend being a holiday and the camp is a sell out. We will travel along the road a short distance to the town of Gunbower which is close to the town of Echuca which is also a sell out for the coming weekend.
Later we head back to the Swan Hill Club for happy hour and grab some food whilst there. On the way back we take the park path which has a range of free gym equipment which we have a go at as we walk back to the van.
We pack up all our gear which will make life easier in the morning and our drive will take about an hour and a half tomorrow. No Survivor tonight, bugger.
