Doug arrived at the Gembrook meet point complaining of too much Christmas cheer and did his best to explain away the suspicious wet patch.



Riddle me this – how many austourers does it take to inspect a camelback….?



Four – three to inspect and one to take the photo.

Out of Gembrook and into the state forest.



We followed the power lines into Gippsland.



A short cut over the dam wall south of Erica.



Strange offerings in the bush.



Doug in action.



Plenty of Pete’s bathtub potholes, some fast open gravel and paved goat tracks delivered us to lunch in Briagolong.

Whilst Steve headed for home, Pete harassed an emu chick until it tripped over its own feet.

Some of doonap’s Christmas card roads delivered us to Bruthen.

Camp was set in record time.



A short stroll over the bridge, up the hill and through town.



And we had arrived!



We did our best to ensure that Williamson may miss out.

Pete and Doug favoured the stout. For me, the wheat and pale ale went down a treat…

Looks like we may have the need for a few more of these brewery weekenders – we were told a microbrewery is soon to open in Buchan and another in Mitta Mitta.

We decided to give the pub a miss and headed to the takeaway for dinner.



They cooked up big plates of burgers and ooh look, stubbies…



The celebration continued on the way back to the caravan park and on and on…
