posted by Cathy - Week 11 - East Gippsland to Yuraygir NP
This is our last week of the Tasmania Roadtrip. We travel from Victoria north through New South Wales on our way back to Brisbane. We passed through some of the worst of the Victorian and NSW bushfire affected areas but were still able to see and do most things. As they said, 'we are still open for business!' Mallacoota in East Gippsland, Victoria, was a highlight of this part of the trip as was Mimosa Rocks on the southern NSW coast. Budderoo National Park is inland from Kiama where you can visit the stunning Carrington Falls and some spectacular scenery and swimming holes. The 'Waterfall Way' from Armidale to Dorrego is a scenic drive you definitely should include on your bucket list. Finally we camped at some of the beautiful NSW beaches in Yuraygir National park.

We headed south on the Lake Highway along the Central Plateau, crossing the Great Western Tiers and passed Pine Lake, Great Lake and Arthurs Lake. It was a very scenic drive and the walk at Pine Lake was a highlight of this section of the trip. We then headed west to Mole Creek and set up camp at Lake Parangana, part of the Mersey River system of dams. King Solomons Cave and Marakoopa Cave were definitely worth a visit. The nearby Devils Gullet Lookout was absolutely spectacular and don't forget to do the walk to Alum Cliffs for an amazing view of the Mersey River and Gorge. The Murals at Sheffield were worth a look after we had, probably our last, Sea Scallop Pie. We stayed overnight at Forth only 9km from Devonport where we caught the Spirit of Tasmania ferry back to Melbourne, Victoria, next morning.
