Lochie hits the road for a road trip through New South Wales. Kosciuszko National Park is the destination for day 3...
It was Easter, so once the chocolate rush had worn off, it was time to get back on the road for the penultimate day. The sun was shining and the drive was fantastic, but as we drove closer to Kosciuszko National Park, the clouds moved in... as did the fog.
Initially, I thought the rain and mist would hinder the shoots that had to be done today, but after I'd stopped panicking about the camera gear, I realised just how much it added to the locations. I loved the way that everywhere in the park felt so isolated (our destinations were 2.5 hours from Canberra and Mount Kosciuszko is even further!), and the fog gave everything a mystical feel.
First stop in the park was the Kiandra Heritage Precinct. Kiandra is the destination of one of the shortest gold rushed in Australia's history - it lasted less than a year, and by the end of it only 350 people were left in the town. There's all sorts of old mining relics if you take the time to look for them, and you can even rent out some of the old cabins.
From there, it was a short drive down the road to Three Mile Dam. By now, things were getting really wet and muddy, but I was beyond caring. A think layer of fog hang around the trees, an artistic opportunity too good to pass up!
The rest of the afternoon was a chance enjoy the epic scenery and recoup for the long drive tomorrow...
