Road Trippin – Day 10 – Eden to Bairnsdale

Eden was very relaxing with beautiful views of the coast and rich history. But it’s a new day and its time to get moving! Today I ride to Bairnsdale which is a small town on my way to Melbourne.

I will be staying at the Mitchell River Tavern. I’ve never stayed at a tavern before so thought I’d try it out especially when it has 4 star reviews and a nightly stay price of only $98! The cheapest so far!

And it was excellent!! Great room and you only need to walk down a flight of stairs to get to the restaurant and bar! How good is that?? 🙂

<< e weather today was extremely hot with temperatures across the coast averaging as high as 42 degrees Celsius. Very rare to have just the one day of the week so hot! It felt even hotter on the motorcycle and at one point my iPhone ceased to function due to the extreme heat. Lucky for me I had a spare phone which I used to navigate my way to Bairnsdale from Lakes Entrance.

< span style=”font-size: 1rem”> On my way to Bairnsdale I rode along the famous and legendary Snowy River trail. It is so very beautiful and the river looked good too.< a href=””><< inally made it to the tavern, checked in, rushed to my room with a couple of cans of bourbon and cola to keep cool and relax in much needed air conditioning. Tonight my job is to get some sleep because tomorrow is a big day! Tomorrow I ride to Melbourne!! See you on the road 😀
