We left Brisbane and drove down the Pacific Highway stopping every 2 hours to alternate driving.
Here are some snaps from the trip so far.

Next morning we continued towards Sydney guided by our trusty Kate (GPS) who pointed us in the right direction.
We had a bit of bother across the harbour tunnel in Sydney where a car had broken down, so Kate made us drive down to Randwick before we could turn left towards Vaucluse where our daughter Carol and S-I-L David live. After a nice evening with them and a good night's sleep, Diane and I got up early to take a walk along the cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean before breakfast.

While we were in Sydney, Carol and David took us to Shark Bay for a wonderful lunch.

Well on Thursday, the weather report mentioned rain or snow falls and very cold weather up there so upon investigating, we found going west would be the best (warmest) option, so we drove to Young in NSW where we are now staying overnight. The Snowy Mountains are still on our 'Bucket List.' But next time we'll go in summer. Colin, our good friend is here in Young, visiting his 90 year old mother who lives in a retirement village. So we called in and picked them both up after lunch and they showed us around this beautiful country town.
