Down the Monaro and across Brown Mtn
Via Cooma. No question. I used to do some work in Bega and Eden.
Bulli Pass, Picton Rd, Hume, Federal, Monaro, Snowy Mts, Princes Hws should be a bit faster thanks the Princes. Certainly easier. Not as scenic and less nice places to stop though.
Actually, what does google reckon, and why?
4.5h to Merimbula would be interesting.
If you cant trust google.......
My impression is that the Princes Hwy is of lower quality and with a lot more traffic than the Monaro and Snowy Mts Highways and of course the Hume and Federal are divided roads. Your prospects of spending a lot of time cruising at 100 km/hr are much higher inland.
Must be a good run through Nowra
It takes too long to get there but worth the drive, 35 years ago I could do Carlingford to Cooma in 4 hours
Flat in my Suzuki Seirra, total disregard of speed limits, I now do Central Coast to Cooma in 4:40 knowing I
Need my licence.(northconex should save another 5-10 minutes)
Monaro hwy. Is heaps better, but I do miss the tight banked bend just south of Numeralla river, if you look in the
Paddock adjcent to the new bend you can still make our the old embankment.
Pretty much bang on all around.
That's just inconsiderate to other road users plain and simple... Naturally this is from truckies who drive the road (i.e. hume) all the time. So the know they could have maintained a gap to the rig in front on the flat, then timed their run to close that gap uphill as you describe, then make the overtake on flat/downhill... But of course the other trucker sees this and thinks "I ain't git'n passed by no stinkin Kenworth", and speeds up.
It's all in the movie:
"ain't nuthin like a caterpillar engine"
Real bad accident near Williamsdale (just south of).
Motorcyclist deceased I saw.
I saw the pic.
Dirt truck and what looks to be a blue vehicle tangled up.
Sadly that stretch of road near Williamsdale has claimed too many lives.
Just sent tis to The Alpine Resorts Co-Ordinating Council requesting an explanation:
VICTORIA RSORT CAR ENTRY PASSES
Have just been informed that YOU have directed that an ALL RESORTS Car Pass Entry will NOT be available this year.
No explanation given.
So if I want to Ski Hotham and Falls I now have to purchase 2 Car Passes and if I want to add Mount Buller that means 3 Car Passes.
NSW Parks offers 1 Pass to cover all their areas for a Full Year.
How much more money are you dragging out of my pocket to gain access to the 3 Resorts in Victoria.
A FULL EXPLANATION would be appreciated
You want us to visit these Mountain Resorts and boost the Local Economy but hit us with 3 seperate costs just to gain access.
What has the Minister and the Local Tourist Councils have to say about this decision?
A response would be appreciated.
I saw that the Falls Creek earlybird pass pricing has gone out, but I haven't seen anything about the all-resorts pass being unavailable again - has this been made public anywhere?
You can recoup via regional travel vouchers
Lame! Just had a look at falls website:
SEASON PERMITS 2021 BUY ONLINE BUY AT FALLS CREEK
Falls Creek $485
All Victorian Resorts Not available in 2021
Really dont want to fork out $400+ at 3 different resorts
Are Falls and Hotham no longer on the same pass (used to be reciprocal)?
From what I read no, I could be mistaken however.
They (entry permits) were never on the same pass... the only way to do that was get the all-resorts (incl Buller, Stirling, BawBaw, Lake Mtn)
So expensive compared to NSW and they still make a loss.
