Day 72: The New Car At Last

The new car - a 2006 BMW 530d. I took this photo on the way home today, the plan was to stop at every tourist trap between Coburg & Canberra.

The first was Glenrowan with the big Ned Kelly, it was pretty busy and it was very hard to get a good photo of the car with Ned.

The Ettamogah Pub was next on the list, I actually drove past it and had to make a U-turn to go back... I was sure I didn't see the signs leading up to the turn off. Turns out I didn't, they've been pulled down and the Pub's closed. At least it was easy to get a photo of the car with the Pub in the backround.

After Ettamogah is Holbrook with the enormous submarine that somehow landed in regional NSW a very long way from its natural habitat.

I knew I was getting closer when I pulled in to Gundagai, I was starting to feel pretty tired too. As I was grabbing a coffee I heard someone yelling out my name... It was my brother Dion who was driving a truck in the opposite direction and had pulled in for some fuel. After a quick catch up and showing off of the new car we headed our separate ways.

Eventually I made it home, the car and I travelled around 760km and the fuel gauge is showing about half way between the quarter and half tank marks. So far I'm pretty impressed with my purchase.


  1. I'm impressed too, Dale! Looking forward to seeing it and having a ride.

  2. Mum - you should be asking for a drive, not a ride!
