Yackety Yack, Day 2 – Killers in the car park

Day 2 Wednesday 10/5/2023, Yackandandah, 1-approx 16 warm sunny

It was a double doona night last night, but I had forgotten to put the second doona on the bed. Thank goodness for the electric blanket.

It’s an icy morning this morning and I’m snug in bed reading. I can hear the creek babbling behind us.

We’ve stayed in Yackandandah twice before. The town is a heritage-listed, hidden gem in any season. An old gold mining area it had once been on the route between Melbourne and Sydney. A sturdy stone bridge was built over Commissioner’s Creek before officials decided to divert the route through Chiltern instead. That decision preserved this quaint village nestled in the forested hills. The short one-block Main Street is still one of solid stone and brick buildings bearing dates from the 19th century.

We all wander about in the sun, coffees in hand yacking. After all there’s so much news to catch up on. The boys adjust our tow hitch and the level looks much better. The golfers take off to try out the local course. We take walks along the colourful Main Street and around town as our park is in the heart of town.

Our caravan club president, Toothless organises lunch at the Star Hotel which specialises in smoked and BBQ’d meats and ribs. The Mac n cheese is pretty good too.

Toothless’ Missus finds some red mushrooms, in the supermarket car park of all places. You know the ones, those poisonous little buggers called ‘Fly Agaric’. It’s pleasant yacking in the sun.

Happy hour happens in the toasty and wood fire-warmed camp kitchen.

Dinner is Steamed pork buns with no room for any more.

Don’t forget to bring home some mushrooms dear.

Accom: $38.00

  1. Yack can be absolutely freezing in the early mornings. But looks like your days there were nice. Wouldn’t touch those magic mushies though 😂🍄
