We woke early and set off to Lakes Entrance via Merimbula broad walk and a stop in Eden. The drive between Merimbula and Lakes Entrance took about 3 hours, we saw lots of stunning landscapes! We saw a few new animals today too: a pelican, fish, kangaroos, a possum and a massive lizard walking across the road, we had to swerve to miss it! On …
We have just spent the coldest night of our life -and to be fair, it was our own stupid fault: Australia has gone from heat wave to glacial overnight and Australian houses do not have any heating system! We understand that it is a hot country and that there may not be a requirement for central heating everywhere, but a little fan radiator in the …

When it started getting light I was up, went for a quick walk to the foreshore. Not really a beach, as it had an inlet running parallel to it which I couldn't seem to find a way to cross. I took a couple of photos. It was pretty enough at sunrise but certainly nothing special.
I had a shower - hot for 5 minutes then suddenly cold. Nothing about that in the rules!

TravelPod Member ReviewsKickback Cottages Lakes Entrance
The 'cottage' is more like a caravan without wheels. For one night this is totally adequate with all the kitchen amenities you need. We were greeted on arrival, that's the service.
WIFI is only available in the games area. This area is entertaining with 2 football tables, air hockey, large screen TV and a BBQ grill. There is a book and DVD library that is a good idea.
The shower was wonderful and the bed was comfortable, more than adequate for one night.
