Motorcycle Touring Day 7 - Eden to Lakes Entrance Victoria.

Boydtown Church
We left at about 11 am on Saturday morning after a quick stop at this old church ruin on a hill in Boydtown, Eden. Apparently the Church was built as part of Ben Boyd’s plans to build a new city at Eden to rival Sydney Town at the time. He went bankrupt 5 years later and reminant buildings of his dream are scattered around the area.

We were heading to Lakes Entrance today but as it was only a short trip we detoured off for a more scenic tourist route to Mallacoota. Mallacoota seems to be a holiday town and mostly a very large caravan park! We had lunch and continued on to Orbust via the tourist route and ended up being cut off because flooding. This meant heading all the way back about 40kms which was rather annoying.

 We made it to Lakes Entrance by 5.30pm and setup the Tent. By days end we had done 380kms to get to Lakes Entrance which should have only been about 250km.
