Day 18 Wednesday 22/6/2022 Yelarbon to Millmerran, 3 – 21
A decent sized town, we stop at Inglewood to do a little shopping at the IGA, butcher and baker and baulking at the price of half a cabbage, $9, I strike coleslaw off the menu. This is a pretty town with a freedom camp beside the river.
It’s an easy drive up to Millmerran. The town has a colourful and busy village feel and annually hosts a camp oven cook off. Exhilarated, we near race into the butchers for more goodies. The freezer is groaning, by the way. Vegans we are not.
The Millerran Golf Club allows caravans and motor homes to stay for a donation, the upshot of this is that the grey nomads provide security for their grounds. From our van we have an expansive view down the fairway and it is rather peaceful. At the gate there is a cemetery and nearest to where we are camped are the older graves, though it is strange to see pregnant cows wandering the fence line.
As the sunsets we have happy hour with kookaburras laughing and mozzies threatening to drain us. When the clubhouse opens, we adjourn to the bar. The drinks come in bucket sized glasses and the locals, as we suspected, are friendly.
Woody cooks crumbed lamb cutlets and mash for dinner.
Accom: $10.00 (toilet outside the clubhouse…and drinks at the bar) We can highly recommend this spot, the views are expansive and the neighbours are quiet.
