Default oh look..A lookout

after working way to hard for the year with 3 months of nightshift, I actually had a 3 days off and a massive desire to ride..

So I did..

the plan was to go and see Embery's Lookout that overlooks Corryong. I missed it last 2 times I was up that way and really wanted to see it.


Day 1 was Melbourne to Omeo with as much dirt thrown in.

lets go.

Day 1

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Kr...U0&usp=sharing

about 530km and 7:30hrs in the saddle



rode up through Gembrook and up via the power lines to Jinidvick,
somewhere between Jindivick and Willow Grove was this old Bridge, it was fenced off, so I climbed over the fenced and walked over it...in your face authority!!






landed in Walhalla for a quick photo, worth a visit if you havent






then over Binns Rd, it has 2 routes, follow the road which twists either side of the ridge or follow the dual track with just goes up and down the ridge, fun for the whole family






every 1km or so was these signs, I am guessing that Binns Rd was the main road between Walhalla and the East during the gold rush and there was a lot of buildings and history along there






this was what I came across.... let just say I didnt stop for anymore





but there are some nice views






coming out of the bush into the Maffra Valley brought on more wonderful views








to be continued
