Feb 5, 2017 - Mallacoota

Generally, a very quiet rest day today. Ian has been glued to the TV watching the Bathurst 12 hour race most of the day and I have finished reading another book. We have taken the dogs for a couple of walks - once down the road to buy a paper and the next time just around the block to stretch their legs before we put them in their crates while we went out just before 5pm for another go at the twilight cruise on the lake. The weather today had been a bit drizzly at times, so we had worried the cruise would be cancelled. However, the rain...

Quite a warm day again today. There was a Saturday market in town this morning, so we took the dogs for a short walk and to have a look around. I bought some fruit and vegetables, then we wandered a bit more through town to buy a paper and bun for morning tea. Ian went off fishing again for a couple of hours (caught quite a few small ones again that had to go back, but did manage to catch a couple of legal size that will do nicely for tea tonight). We had thought we were going on a twilight boat cruise around the lake and waterways this...

A lazy day mainly around camp today. Whilst I did some washing, Ian went off fishing (caught lots but all too small to keep), then, when he came back to camp, I went for a wander around town. At about 4.30pm we took the dogs for quite a long walk down to the beach via a lovely wooded walk, then along the beach back towards town, where, at a given point, you can wade through some shallow water and make your way back into town and back home. Mallacoota is certainly a very beautiful area surrounded by the mountains literally coming down into...

Feb 2, 2017 - Glasshouse camp area - Lake Tyers to Mallacoota

We took the dogs for a run on the beach before we finished packing up this morning but still managed to be on the road about 10.30am. Our first brief stop was in Orbost from where we followed the Snowy River to its mouth at Marlo. From Marlo we followed the coast to Cape Conran where we stopped to have a late morning tea. Cape Conran is a really lovely spot for a picnic- it would have been a perfect location for an overnight camp, but unfortunately no camping allowed so we continued back onto the Princes Highway at Cabbage Tree and onto...

Oct 31, 2016 - Mallacoota

31st October – Mallacoota…. It was blowing but sunny this morning so the little grapefruit decided to do a big wash including the sheets…. After all that excitement we decided to go for a run to Mallacoota (this is a French word meaning sickness of coota’s). It was going on for 1400 before we got there but the Pub still was doing lunch and it was a nice meal. Mallacoota has a non holiday population of around 900 but at Holiday Time this can increase to around 10000….. If you want P&Q don’t go at those times…. Then a bit of a walk around...

Day 31 Tuesday 25th March. (Ron) Cloudy today, but Jan wants to get the sheets washed so hopefully they will dry. We chatted with our neighbour Barry and Annie from Ormiston Bne this morning, he's off to see the WW2 Bunker Museum near the Mallacoota airport so Ron will go with him. The girls will stay behind and do tatting and knitting. The bunker, which was created for the sole purpose of radio intelligence monitoring and gathering had a vital role in the protection of the a largely un-inhabited SE corner of Australia. The Germans had laid...

Day 30 - Monday 24th March - at Mallacoota Thinking back on yesterday - we must be very ecumenical, we've been to church 4 times since we left (1) Bretheren Assemblies at Canterbury Gardens. (2) Church of Christ at Hadden near Ballarat. (3) Lutheran at Tabor near Penshurst (4) Anglican /Uniting here at Mallacoota. I wonder what's in store for Sunday 30th - Presbyterian, Baptist, AOG????? It's a good thing there is only 1 GOD and 1 Heaven, we can stay focused on where the message is heading regardless of denominational differences. But I...

Day 29 - Sunday 23rd March - at Mallacoota Oh WOW. This caravan park is huge. They claim it is the largest van park (with No cabins) in the Southern Hemishere! We're not about to argue. It covers 75 acres and the site across the road from us is number 705. Great park and no feeling of being too large. Today has dawned sunny and we are off to church at St Peters which is a Uniting/Anglican co-operative parish. Todays service was 16 congregation + 2 on organ and guitar + minister (I think Anglican). That was good crowd as the normal...

Mar 22, 2014 - Lakes Entrance to Mallacoota

Day 28 - Saturday 22nd March Lakes Entrance to Mallacoota We would like to stay for a couple of nights to rest and do little, but it won't be here at Lakes Entrance, the site is required for a booking tomorrow - so hitch up roll out, and head further east. We've now completed the list of "must see ......" So there is is no itinerary or pressure dates other than our "home by ..." date which is Good Friday. Today we slept in and used up every minute of our site time leaving the park at 10:02. Unknown to us a public procession of semis and...

Feb 5, 2009 - Heaven

Today we got up and went for a walk down the beach. The beach went on for miles and miles. There were about ten people on the beach. We laid in the water and sunned ourselves. As we walked along the beach we noticed something in the water.. it was an octopus. It was about 18" long. By the time we figured out it was there we were to late to get a photo. On the way back we watched some fishermen. One of them had a big catch so we waited while he brought it in. It turned out to be about a 5' stingray. He had a fight on his hands. The hook let...

Feb 4, 2009 - Lucky Meeting

We went for a run down the beach on the Tasman Sea. We then went for a tour at the Bega Cheese Factory. We had lunch out on the deck over looking the land. For lunch we had a platter for two. The platter had meat, fruit, vegetables, crackers, spread and yes, cheese. We bought some cheese and jam for the road and we were on our way. On the way we stopped for a break at a road side rest area. We chatted up a couple at the stop. They had just returned from their summer place in Mallacoota. They recommended that we stop there so we did. It is a...

Dec 7, 2005 - Vic: Across the border to Mallacoota

Waking up at Fishery Beach is rough - our over-excitement at being on the road again, coupled with the previous evening's ill-timed experiment into cask wine has meant that we're feeling a lot less perky than is preferable. Luckily the water is right by us and beautifully warm, so a restorative dip is in order. We're determined to cross the border and decide to not be too ambitious, so we make Mallacoota for the evening, which is pretty much the first town on the coast once you cross the border and a fairly easy drive. Mallacoota is right...
