From Bicheno, we drove north along the coast to St Helens, where we stayed in a cabin style unit at Kellraine.
This style of accommodation makes our roadtrips so much easier, having a kitchen, fridge, washer/dryer or clothes line handy. We're able to make breakfast for ourselves, pack a picnic lunch, sometimes cook a quick pasta or salad for dinner, and wash enough clothes for the 4 of us, to get us through to the next place with laundry facilities.
Other times we eat out for breakfast, visit a bakery or cafe for lunch and enjoy the local produce at restaurants and pubs for dinner.
We didn't have a lot of time to spend at Binalong, as we were nearing the end of our holiday. A few hours at the beach was the best we could do.
A warm sunny day made the water look very inviting, but we read the colour chart wrong.
That gorgeous Tropical Turquoise colour was actually Antarctic Aqua.
I'm sure I saw icebergs floating by.
Regardless, the kids put on their bathers and splashed about in the water until they were a pale shade of Hypothermia Blue.
We dried them off, jumped in the car and headed for Launceston.
