Gundagai to Barooga

Headed south from Gundagai looking for a place to stop off the Hume Highway chanced the old highway bypassed two plus years ago and the town of Woomargama.  A one pub town with several highway businesses closed.  But has a new RTA rest stop not in any books or websites.  Had a beer or two and a chat with the publican at the pub before settling for the night, quiet nice.
Changed over a gas bottle in Albury and did some provisioning at Woolies before heading on to Howlong where I camped by the river just out of town, good enough spot for just the night.
Saturday to Cottadiddi Res expecting it to be a bit busy because of the nice weather and the weekend but surprisingly quiet, just three overnighters and a boat or two in the day.  Ended up staying 10 days that also included a long weekend for Victoria. That saw the numbers swell but not too bad.  Riding into Cobram for provisions a 20km return trip, SUPing up and down the river and walking around the reserve, nice.

Thought about going to Boonie Doon for the music festival but will probably go to the solo rally at Balranald instead?
