Camperdown Cruise happy snaps

It's October, and that means Camperdown Cruise time!

I totally forgot to bring my camera, but luckily I can share photos from Instagram with you.

This year we tried something different and drove down from Sydney to Camperdown - a trip of over 2,000 kms return! It did mean for some great site-seeing - starting with the Big Merino in Goulburn.

Aussies have a tradition of making 'big' thing tourist traps - there's even a list of them on Wikipedia here to plan your next roadtrip.

Next up was Holbrook - home to the inland submarine HMAS Otway.

The submarine is a must-see on the trip from Sydney to Victoria.

We decided to stop at a little hotel on the way - it had an amazingly kitsch sign from the 1950s out the front.

Does anyone else choose their accomodation based on how retro or vintage it looks?

Our accomodation for the cruise was 15 minutes down the road from Camperdown - a boutique hotel in Mt Noorat.

We loved this place! Full of old wood and antiques, and a brilliant restuarant downstairs that has great vegetarian food.

This photo waas from the Friday night of the festival - I went for an 'easy to dance in' outfit of Avanti Tea-Timer, swing pants and re-mix wedges.

The Cruise itself was fun as always! Jakk got to meet Jai Malano (one of her favourite singers) and I got to drink cocktails in the Tiki Lounge.

It was really great to get away from the hustle of Sydney and spend some time hanging out in rural Victoria listening to amazing bands.

Fingers are crossed we can also make it for 2017, we can't wait to see the band line up!
