Adelaide ---> Naracoorte Caves ---> Mt Gambier
May 28, 2007
After our visit to the caves we went on over to Mount Gambier which is a town built on the side of a old volcanoe, we stayed the night here and early morning we went up to see the Blue Lake, which is the lake that now fills the old volcanoe crator, and believe it or not its totally BLUE ! looks well nice, this actually is the towns water supply as well :) $500 dollar fine if you get caught pissing it... NOT my lame borat joke anyway.... we then soldiered on with the car till we hit the great ocean road!
When we were in Adelaide we got a quote to fix the car which was around 1200 dollars so we thought no way!! So we just chanced the car again and we made it to Naracoorte Caves which was around 450k away, we still have to stop every 50 - 60k to fill her up with water but shes still going!!!! Along the way we saw LOADS of winerys... just vineyards all over the place, saw about 20 or so different lables of wine, you could pull in and try some tastings but decided agaisnt it having the car! Naracoorte caves are pretty cool, they are limestone caves and they are alot like the cave zaz made for his 2nd year award winning animation project! i was expecting this hand to come from behind me and drag me away! We had a right good explore around, it was pretty cold down there, was like 15 degrees and it was totally damp as well, you could hear drips of water hitting the ground, dripping off the stalligtites, was well smart! Also in the car park there were loads of wallabys jumping around!
