Lakes Entrance

Our Last Camp

storm 30 °C

Our last stop on our 11 month big lap of Australia was Lakes Entrance, which wasn’t the place I really wanted to end our amazing journey but Deb was keen on a hot shower, a caravan park and some shops to do a little xmas shopping. Our two nights here were forgettable as most caravan parks are not places we usually like to stay at, and even though the park was well priced and well looked after you just don’t get the atmosphere that a bush camp has.

Our time was spent visiting nearby Metung, Lake Tyers and the main beach. Kalimna Lookout just out of town gives good views of the entrance and lake. The weather was overcast while we were here and on the last night around 7pm we encountered a wild storm which brought thunder, lightning, heavy rain and strong winds. We survived the onslaught with no damage but the next morning as we were packing up it started raining again, so with wet canvas we packed up for the last time and headed home in the rain.

The drive home was full of mixed emotions, sadness that the trip was over, the anticipation of seeing family, our two dogs, and our property and the realisation that slotting back into the rat race and all of its responsibilities that we had left behind 11 months ago was not going to be easy. Our last blog will follow shortly with a summary of our trip and a few thoughts on what places we liked best, what we would do differently and what items were indispensable on our journey. Stay tuned.
