The Start.

Sat, 22. Sep. 2018
17:25

Location

Jan Juc Caravan Park, 93 Sunset Strip, Jan Juc VIC 3228, Australia

Info

Made the journey from Yarra Glen to Jan Juc in 3 hours. Reasonable considering the roads. At this stage most of the roads in VIC have been a little rougher than NSW and WA for that matter. 🤔🤔🤔 The caravan park is rather large. Mostly permanent vans or chalets. Only 4 powered sites, all vacant when we turned up. In the last 5 minutes 2 more campers have turned up. 😥😥😥 There goes the privacy! The camping and powered sites are at the back of the park some 300 metres away from the entrance and all up hill. The kids have taken their bikes and gone exploring. We did mention to them that they would have to push the bikes back up the hill. 🙄🙄🙄 The roads are gravel and it was 1st gear in the cruiser. Well, well the kids just got back completely out of breath after riding up the hill. 😲😲😲 You just never can tell what kids will do.
