Road Trip – Bathurst to Port Stevens

We stayed overnight in a converted convent/school on the outskirts of Bathurst, Mount Panorama was on our doorstep.   We had a drive around the track – you have to don’t you?   I’ve said it on other mediums – the Toyota is not a sporty beast.   And kudos to those race drivers that speed around the track.   The passenger wasn’t best pleased to be driving through the esses or even down the hill.

From there we went into the town for some breakfast then headed out.   Next stop was Sofala – a little known mining town that has not been (noticeably) updated since it was built, there is still small scale mining. It was where the rebellion started.  Well worth the visit, but not huge.

After that it was a straight drive through to Port Stevens.   Found our accommodation which is at the Horizons Golf Club, good news for hubby, who joined us on Monday.

Photos are all of Sofala.
