    We decided to stop at a free camp at Yass so we only had a short drive in to Canberra and could make the most of our first day there. The camp at Yass was so good we ended up staying 2 nights. We had prime position on the river with our own resident duck who Marg hand fed...he even slept under our van.

    Did a bit of shopping in town, washed the car and
    van and generally got ourselves organised for our stay in Canberra.

    Temperature 5-20°

    Day 2: After moving van to new site we down the street to a local bakery that bakes only GF on a Thursday. Judy was able to buy some GF bread etc. After Lunch we drove into Canberra and visited the War Memorial, was very crowded. Judy was able to find a bit more information on Fred Huxley.

    Yass strikes me as a very historical town with some beautiful old buildings some of which I managed to capture here.
    Great reminder of the Ampol brand which was marketed as an all Australian brand back when I was a boy.

    Yass is a town in the Southern Tablelands of New South Wales, Australia in Yass Valley Council. The name appears to have been derived from an Aboriginal word, "Yarrh" (or "Yharr"), said to mean 'running water'.

    Yass is located 280 km south-west of Sydney, on the Hume Highway. The Yass River, which is a tributary of the Murrumbidgee River, flows past the town. Yass is 59 km from Canberra; lying at an altitude of 505 m AMSL.

    Yass has a historic main street, with well-preserved 19th-century verandah post pubs (mostly converted to other uses). It is popular with tourists, some from Canberra and others taking a break from the Hume Highway.
