After a blissful 2 days spent at Jervis Bay, it's time to move onwards on our journey across Australia. Got up at 5.30 for a last walk down to the beach and although we'll be sad to leave I know there will be plenty more beautiful places to visit along the way.
Not sure where we will end up today, we have a rough plan of our road trip but will stop whenever & wherever the mood takes us :)
Checked the nature cam this morning but sadly nothing on it! Did find this on the bridge by the beach tho' :)
I don't know, you go on holiday with your fiancé & he pulls not just one bird..
But a pair of them!
They are beautiful though :)
So many different colours!
just set off towards Melbourne. We were going to take the Hume Highway across country but decided to go the coastal route via Princes Highway instead, it adds another 400km to the journey but will be much nicer I think :)
It's 10.20 am & the temperature is 36c
First main leg of our journey
Thank 'the inventor of Aircon' for Aircon! Today it's been 37c pretty much the whole time we've been on the road!
After about 100km we stopped off at a quaint little town called Bodalla to post some postcards (which will hopefully arrive in England before we do!) & to get a coffee at the lovely little bakery/cafe.
200 km later I saw a sign for Mystery Bay and it sounded too interesting to ignore!
With its name & big rocks & crashing waves this little gem reminded us of Cornwall on a very hot Day!! The sand wasn't as white as at Jervis but it still squeaked when you walked on it due to its powdery texture.
Back on the road (& about 5 hours behind our loose schedule due to the uncontrollable urge to stop & explore!) the thought hadn't really crossed our minds that a lot of campsites would be booked up due to the Christmas Hols..
...but unfortunately that's how it is, so after searching Google relentlessly we found a promising sounding site (Eden Beachfront Holiday Park) just off the Princes Highway & managed to secure a pitch on the phone.
Here is the view from our van...
