Continued from ' Trip to the Blue Mountains 3 '.
Last day trip to Tamworth, in the New England area of NSW. We drove for nearly six hours to visit an aunt, stay overnight, then five hours back to Tea Gardens, and home.
Accommodation for the night was at the Econo Lodge on Goonoo Goonoo Rd, (Pron: 'Gunner Ganoo'). A pleasant night.
Thank You !
