Waking up this morning was a little bit sad knowing we are saying goodbye to the family. We will not see them again for a few months.

We had breakfast, finished packing, checked we had everything before checking out and going to the family to have a hot shower and then on to Glen Innes.

We last travelled the New England Hwy from the Hunter Valley through to Qld on our roadtrip in Dec 2019.

This trip was much more relaxed with no major bush fires to contend with.
Our first stop was. little town called Aberdeen. We found the rest stop and had a cup of tea and I had a read of the plaques that explained some of the town’s history. As you can imagine, from the name “Aberdeen” the town was settled by Scottish immigrants who came looking for their fortunes. (read more here)

Back on the road and our next stop was Tamworth for lunch. We found Woolworths, bought some bread and ham and looked on the map for a park. There was a huge park on the side of the river. It was another big council playground/park similar to the one we had been at with the boys a couple of days ago..

Next stop was Armidale for a cuppa and a stretch of the legs. We found the information centre and it had a large park beside it.

Final stop was our accommodation for the night. The Glen Innes motel is clean and comfortable and perfectly suitable for a night before we continue on to Brisbane tomorrow.
