One day soon I will write a guide to the trail, but for now we're too busy pedalling. All you get today is photos. ( I finally wrote the guide click here to read it.)
We timed our visit to coincide with the Bright Flower Festival, probably the prettiest time of year to cycle the trail. We aren't tackling the whole trail, just dipping our toes in the best bits. A heads up here - all the really lovely countryside is between Everton and Bright.
Bright to Porepunkah
|One of the prettiest sections of the trail is right in Bright|
|The trail runs beside lots of quirky little gardens and farms.|
|Mum and Dad taking the kids for a walk.|
|I have no idea whether this guy is a llama or an alpaca, but he was cute.|
|We didn't eat here but it did look inviting.|
Eurobin to Myrtleford
|The old Eurobin Station is an easy place to park the car and do a short scenic section of the trail. From here it doesn't matter which way you go. Both directions are interesting.|
|This place had some fascinating old things - a real trip down memory lane, ruined only a little by the fact that I got a puncture nearby.|
|This was taken between Eurobin and Porepunkah on an earlier trip. It is a great display, don't you think.|
Harrietville isn't strictly on the Murray to the Mountains Rail Trail, but I really wanted to put these photos of waratahs in. The waratah is the Floral Emblem of New South Wales. The first photo is easily recognizable but the flowers in the second photo are also waratahs.
|I am yet to meet a kangaroo who isn't as curious about me as I am about him.|
