Day 8 – Balranald to Bonegilla – 523 kms

Started the day at Balranald primary school with an 8:30am start. Lots of kids running around in pj’s with their eyes wide open looking at the various cars handing out gifts. One boy continually kept saying to us “how about a burnout” we just laughed!

Again the terrain has changed – lush beautiful countryside

Got started on our 500 or so km trek to Albury (Bonegilla). There was a lot of catching zzzz’s in the back and they Icecreaminators kept waking me up with 2 beeps of the siren saying that they wanted 2 beers.

Arrived at Stuarts Sunset Soirée at Bonegilla, a migrant camp on the outskirts of Albury. A couple of Bashers grew up at the camp and fairly emotional for them to come back to their humble beginnings starting their new life in Australia.

Presentation of the awards last night. The Bees were awarded the $17k trophy for raising $19k – very proud of my fundraising efforts! official photos to come. Thanks again to my family and friends for their continued support. Bash Idol was quite good last night (surprisingly).

Onto Bowral today !! Stay tuned for day 9 post
