In Freycinet National Park we saw some nice beaches, beautiful coloured ocean and some impressive lookouts (see photos). The only bad thing was that we didn't have time to do some of the walks which started at about 2 hours return.
We then continued our way north. We went through Elephant's Pass where there was a famous pancake place. We have to say that it might be famous but it is pretty ordinary. But then again I might be used to eastern European pancakes. :)
The road then took us to St. Mary's from where we continued north to St Helens.
Roxy noticed our next accommodation place prior to entering St Helens (which was odd). We got in, the reception was unattended and the complex seemed deserted. We somehow found our key and went to our room. The room was a dump and dirty. The reviews on the internet about the place must have been placed by the owners of the place. So we decided to just pack up our stuff and head into St Helens.
After a bit of digging we found a place that was recently renovated and very nicely arrange for pretty much the same money.
We then went and spent some time in the town centre, got some dinner and went in our room to relax.
