The tractor almost looks like an early allis-charmers but I don't think it is quite right.

When we were kids, in the 50's & 60's, Dad would drive the Zephyr, towing timber chassis & plywood pop-top caravan (that he and his Dad made) and then the 16' catamaran upside on the roof of the caravan, for our three week Xmas holiday.

We use to travel along this road between Orbost and Bega.


That was before this section of the Princes Highway was bypassed. At least I think this was a part of the Old Princes Highway.

Last Xmas Mrs W & went for a trip down my memory lane. Mrs W said something along the lines of big fuggin deal, when I found this. Sound familar???

Anyway, anyone know where this is? And confirm that this is a part of the Old Princes Highway??
