We left our Couchsurfing host at about 06:30 and we had a 9 hour drive!
We ensured that we stopped at McDonald’s on the way because we needed a healthy breakfast!
We got on the road at astound 7:15 or so and headed to Apollo Bay. The journey was easy and we got to Mount Gambier in no time! Mount Gambier is a big tourist attraction which we were aware of, so we made sure to stop there on our way.
First off, we stopped for lunch which we got from muffin break for a decent price! Their coffee is delectable.
We left here and headed to the blue lake.
This is a volcanic crater which is used as a water supply and is incredibly blue!
We left here and headed just down the road to the sunken garden. This is a garden which has been crafted around a sinkhole, which was interesting! At least until we came across 2 beehives and decided to leave!
During the drive, we got more and more into a forest and more and more up a mountain!
We are actually staying just past Apollo Bay and basically on a mountain!
We got to a point where it was a gravel track and also very close to the edge, but we survived!
There was a lot of parrots flying around too, in beautiful colours.
We arrived at our helpX an the lady is wonderful! We had a coffee and a chat and then had some food along with a chat, so we can’t complain!
