About 4 Kms out of Towong there is a look-out tower which provides you with a view to ? Tintaldra was approaching so it was decided to go for a tour of Tintaldra, viewing the Murray River with the branches on both sides; then viewing the park alongside the Murray River with beautiful trees in the background with a large lot of Cockatoos flying in and out of some trees. There is a turn off towards Cudgewa, which goes through the back of the Mountain, which surround the region from Corryong to Cudgewa. A short distance away is the turn off point to the Mt Mittamatte Regional Park, which rises, to the height of 1003m; In 2003 there were numerous parts of the area that had been burnt, but luckily had been saved in most areas and had shown a wonderful bit of growth in June 2003. Further up there is the Embrys Lookout from where you get a wonderful view of the Kosciusko Main Range which can also be seen when clouds rise slightly leaving a space you can see through, but you must be quick as those clouds will re-enter on their way down again. There are also picnicking facilities with beautiful scenes surrounding the park and enabling you to have a wonderful lot of fresh air you don?t strike in big cities. are there as whilst the crowds There is a big rock part of the way and a couple of turn off points; one of them being the road to the Bluff Falls Road which when it gets to a point where the road goes to Wahiwa straight ahead and with the left turn it goes to Bluff Creek and Bluff Gum Park both of which provide facilities of most kinds to suit the passers by; this area is part of the Burrowa Pine Mountain National Park. Further towards Cudgewa there is a turn off point towards Corryong which is 12 kilos in distance; it is called Briggs Gap Road which as you ascend is quite a job to cycle up. Some people may strike it as a difficult gap to ride up, but as soon as you get to the top about 2.4 kms up, then the road begins to go downwards. As you ascend upwards, with a few parts going up but only slightly, which as nearing the end there is a steep inclination as you descend, which makes it necessary for cyclists to be careful so as to avoid toppling over.

Friday 2nd April 2004 Today had been one of the best days I have had for a long time, with a lot of interesting events throughout. Some events even made it feel as being part of the community here at Corryong, as I have been here on numerous occasions in the last 10 years, which have provided an interest in a wide range of programs. The first one was the ?Poets? Breakfast? which had been followed on by a Judges meeting. The poems were wonderful and had brought a pleasant range of pictures and memories in certain matters, which had been inclusive in the expressions from the Poets. Then I went on a tour of other programs that will take place as the time goes through; which enabled me to work out a timetable for the day. I then went to the Library to find out if I could use a computer to be able to find out about my e-mail I keep getting daily with numerous issues arising from time to time so as to be able to get rid of them as soon as possible. The e-mail played up a few times and then I decided to withdraw from the e-mail and head off to find a place I can see and take pictures from; as the ?Street Parade? will be taken place from the entry to Corryong, and will proceed throughout the main street till the Cemetery where the riders will wait for the opening of the Festival which will take place at 4 pm. The Horses began arriving at the starting point, which were followed off through the Main Street, during which time I took picture throughout the program at differing time.
