Grampians StopOver & Melbourne Cup Family Lunch at Bicheno

Our Tasmanian Caravan holiday commenced on 25th October 2016 and together with our dogs Alfie & Millie we spent 5 nights in the Grampians staying in Halls Gap. We relaxed, undertook plenty of bush walking, climbed Mt William, Mt Zero, had picnic lunches in various parks & met other campers whilst relaxing in the caravan park.

On 30th October we set off for Port Melbourne to board The Spirit of Tasmania for an overnight cruise to Devonport. Once on board Alfie & Millie stayed in ou caravan rather than being locked up in wire cages, and were quite content to sleep on our soft bed during the crossing to Tassie.
The following morning at 5.30am we arrived in Devonport & disembarked to travel to our first stop in Bicheno a seaside town on the East Coast to meet my brother & his wife as we had planned to spend 4/5 days with them prior to their departure home to Perth. We had a safe journey to Bicheno & met our family who were travelling in a MotorHome around Tassie.
November 1st was a special day being Melbourne Cup Holiday & we all went to the Bicheno Tavern for a Melbourne Cup Luncheon dressed up in our "finery" including ladies head facinators & mens hats with suits.
