Following the Murrumbidgee upstream to Gundagai.
I have been here before, its a good free camp and close to the centre of town, so why not. From Wantabadgery its a nice country drive then closer to Gundagai the road is right beside and overlooks the Murrumbidgee river. Duck under the Hume highway bypass and there you are, right in town.
Walked the main and about town then up the hill behind the main street and down to the old railway station. Checking out the rail levellings, tracks long gone, and condemned bridge. The rail bridge is the longest timber truss bridge in Australia at 809m.
Got a nice spot to camp and will be comfortable tonight even with a lot more neighbours. Just shade and grass tonight but that's all I need. The temperature overnight will get down to ~10deg, cool for February I'm thinking, then mid 20s during the day.
