    Snowy River Trip

    Done a trip up to McKillops Bridge on the Snowy River yesterday. Started in Orbost then up through Bonang, back through to Gelentipy and home.
    Just done a quick trip to check out whether it is worth a full weekend, or long day trip. Just took the one lens 55 - 200mm VR and was kicking myself I didn't take a bit of extra gear. I really could have done with the tripod
    Its a place for all styles of photography. Landscapes, water, wildlife, transport, architecture and natural light portraiture.
    Here is a small amount of what is up there.

    If you've got access to a 4 wheel drive, you could easily spend a week or more in the area. Very interesting and different terrain both north & south of Tubbut.

    I'm not sure if they still do it but the Tubbut school used to have a fair on Easter Sunday, bar-b-que broom tossing, kids races, etc; as a fund raiser

    G'day Geoff

    Wonderful - both your pix and the memories
    I have had a love affair with the Buchan / Willis / Snowy River since the mid 60s (tho it's changed dramatically since then)

    Regards, phil
    Of all the stuff in a busy photographers kitbag, the ability to see photographically is the most important

    Thanks all for the comments.
    I'm trying to see what accomodation is up there. I know there is Delegate River Tavern, and I have a friend who has a faily big shearers quarters with its own kitchen in Tubbut.

    The first photo is a steam engine that use to run a sawmill in Goongrah. The second was leaning against a shed in Tubbut, and the third is at the Little River falls on the Buchan side of McKillops Bridge.

    I had only one mishap. Hit a Kangaroo 40km's from home, and it buggered the radiator, the grill and bumperbar. I was a bit wild about that, but thats what happens when you're devoted to photography
