Snowy Mountains Holiday 2014

On the 26th October eighteen club members set off on their  annual spring holiday, this time to Cooma in the Snowy Mountains. What a fantastic adventure it was for everybody that took part. We stayed at the High Country Motel which had wonderful views over Cooma.

The highlight of the trip was on the Thursday when we drove down to Eden to go whale watching and were fortunate enough to see several humpback whales as they made their way down the coast to the Antarctic. Our first sighting was a female with her calf, later we came across two more pods of males and females.

The motel food was excellent with more than enough for everyone; a buffet breakfast, hot drinks, and snack for lunch then a three course meal in the evening - at our last dinner we had a special meal of Rainbow Trout.

As well as whale watching the trip included visits to Yarrangobilly Caves, Brown Mountain, Cooma Monaro Heritage Railway, Snowy Hydro Centre, Cooma Gaol, Thredbo Village, Lake Jindabyne and much more. We even saw snow! It was great.
