Travelling Oz…everyone said we should, so we did

Travelled the B500 Great Alpine Road across Mt Hotham resort to Omeo. Some of it was like this.

And this
Arriving at Hotham Resort

Driving in manual in 2nd gear. Before we got to the snow we came up steep road with lots of bends. Thank goodness we got a bit of experience in the Grampians before coming here.

We had ideal conditions, no rain or snow. But there were some pretty savage cross winds as we got to the more exposed part of the journey.

There is more to the story, but these videos shot on Stephen’s phone give something of the flavour of the most challenging bits. Pretty hard being a passenger depending on your driver!
