Tumut 2 power station is always a nice shady place to stop after the ride through Tumbarumba.

even the bonfire the night before couldn't stop the ice from settling on everything overnight

Day 3, Doughboy (just to say we'd been there) then Braidwood for breakfast, down the Kings Hwy to Bateman's Bay, and the Princes Hwy to Narooma for lunch at the fish and chip shop on the hill.. the best in Australia !!!
A detour off the Highway to Bermagui..

then Bega, Candelo Wyndham and Bombala for a good night's sleep... because before we have our Day 4 breakfast in Orbost we have to do this...

After breakfast Orbost to Buchan, and a tour through the Buchan Caves before the rain set in. By then it was getting late in the day and the rest of the trip home was via the Highway 1 and not worth photographing... except maybe the rain clearing just as the sun went down when we hit the outskirts of Melbourne so we didn't have to contend with rain and darkness.
