The drive to and through Tarra-Bulga National Park is not far from Best Friend Holiday Retreat where we were staying.
It is a lovely drive through forest and while the roads are bitchumen, they are very narrow and windy. Dogs are not allowed in the National Park so we took the dogs for a long walk before we left and they were happy to sleep in the car while David and I took it in turns to do quick walks to check out the Tarra Valley Picnic Ground and the Suspension bridge.
Tarra Valley Picnic Ground
This is a magnificent place. I ventured down the steps past the “Tarra Valley” sign and was immediately standing underneath beautiful tree ferns and large trees. There is some water flowing by and picnic tables scattered along the edges of the banks.
Corrigan Suspension Bridge
We drove to Bulga and found the carpark for quick access to the Corrigan Suspension Bridge. We again took it in turn to mind the dogs and go for a wander down the short track to the bridge. You could spend hours walking around this beautiful area! ( if you didn’t have dogs in the car). The trees are enormous – standing in front of a 75 metre high Mountain Ash you feel very small.
Back to Best Friend Holiday Retreat
Back to our cabin at Best Friend Holiday Retreat and the dogs had a well deserved walk and play in the off leash area.
Lamb Cutlets and fried saganaki
Easy BBQ dinner again. One of my favorite meals to make is to cook up lamb chops and Saganaki Cheese. Salad and some potatoes cooked in the oven. Yummy!
