The past week has been busy visiting some of the sites important in the story of the Kelly Outbreak in North East Victoria and into Jerilderie in New South Wales. I did promise to post more about that, but will leave that for later.
While we were free camping at Oxley, near Wangaratta in Victoria, the reception for the modem was a little patchy, so things have got a little bit behind. We have also travelled significant distances in the past couple of days, and there have been lots of photographs to process, which has also delayed the publishing of posts.
So for this post I will include a couple of maps to show the route taken over the last couple of days, with a photo or two.
Oxley to Jerilderie:
Jerilderie To Ariah Park
Where is Ariah Park? Never heard of it? Neither had I until today. We found this place in the Bible for Free Campers, Camps 6. It’s not strictly Free Camping for us, because we chose to connect to the available power and water. However this community has decided to attract visitors by keeping the costs down, and also offer Free (with a small donation) to campers who want to be self sufficient.
There are several things to check out in Ariah Park, and day trips to Wagga, Junee and some other towns are also possible.
