... We weren't going for long when we stopped at a waterfall walk, missed the turning first time as nothing is well sign posted. We started the walk, it was all up hill and we were wearing many layers as we thought it'd be hot. I spotted an Echidna wander across the path. We both ran up the path to find it head first in the ground raiding an ants nest. It was at it for a while, until it had cleared it out I guess, the ants seemed very angry.
Keen to avoid another Tasmanian winter and experience other places and cultures we are on the move again.
Our last taste of Overland travel did nothing to satisfy our urge to travel outside Australia. Our previous travels through North America, parts of Europe and Africa did convince me that I travel way to fast in my attempt to 'see what is over the next hill'.
... Excellent just enough to see and do. Although the winery and berry farm close in the winter.
Tomorrow we set off to Warrnambool, here we are hoping to spot the Southern Right Whales, although we are a little early in the season yet. They say the weather has been surprisingly warm for this time of year and this may have slowed them down too. We heard one had been spotted in Portland, so they are on their way!
... shutting down at 5. We fancied a coffee but everywhere was closed by 5.30 and the whole city seemed to be boarding a bus home. We did the same and headed back for dinner in Noarlunga. Next day we headed back east towards Victoria. Decided to get a good part of the drive done the first day and shared the driving for 6.5 hours. I booked ahead into a hotel in a placed called Horsham which appeared to be a fair size town on the map & a smart business type hotel ...
... did not see any other 'vacancy' signs on motels or campsites. Right on the beach, chilling out time. Stayed in bed until 8am!! this morning.
Harley Davidson's are very popular here. Saw quite a few outlets, and touring bikes around. These are obviously not the notorious 'Bikies' (motorcycle gangs) that are into crimes like drugs etc. Scary blokes riding on big road bikes. Big problem with gang wars, gang members killed. Lots of tattoos ...
