Thursday 23rd May 2013 Lake Hume - Tallangatta

We had a very leisurely breakfast, and didn't get moving until around 11am. We decided to do a bit of a drive around Lake Hume, looking longingly at some lovely houses with fantastic lake views. We stopped briefly at a lookout over what was the old Tallangatta township that was flooded to make way for the dam (Lake Hume), then went through the "new" town as well a short distance later. There was another lookout through the Mitta Mitta Valley that went all the way to where Falls Creek would be and lots of snow visible on the peaks.

Lunch was decided to be at the Ettamoggah Pub back in NSW, but upon arrival it appeared to have closed for good. So we continued on to the Kinross Woolshed, making it just in time before they no longer served lunch. There were an awful lot of tradies vans having an extended lunch!

Back to "home" and a late afternoon walk down to the dam wall to see the Murray exit the lake and take a few photos. The wind had picked up and the place felt a lot colder than in Kosciuszko National Park as a consequence.
