Heading south...

Our first week in and it was great to catch up with some family and friends in Vincentia, Gerora and Sussex Inlet. Back on the open road it was time to drop back into Tilba to soak up what we missed the first time around.

Tilba countryside is beautiful. As soon as you drive in you start to feel relaxed which is one of the reasons we've come back. 1UploadedFile7.jpg
We have been staying with our friends Virginia and Norm who were kind enough to put us up again for the night. Thanks for your warm hospitality and generosity; if you were a B&B we'd give 5 stars :) We had such a great time with you and meeting your friends, neighbours, animals and WWOOFers! (about WWOOFers for anyone interested).

Yesterday we walked up Gulaga Mountain. Gulaga is a sacred site of the Yuin people who cover much of the south coast. We've been reading a book called My People's Dreaming, stories about aboriginal culture from Elder Max Dulumunmun Harrison, known to the locals as Uncle Max. The book has caused a stir as some of his people believe indigenous knowledge should be kept within the community. We think it's worth sharing... Each of the stones you see in the photos has a sacred story; we felt privelaged just to be there.

Last night we had our first full bush camping experience on Mystery Bay. Our campsite was on a cliff overlooking the ocean. The location just outweighed the cons of bush toilets and showers.

This place still beats the bush toilet!...

Next stops are Wallaga Lake, Merimbula and Lakes Entrance VIC where we'll welcome powered sites and proper showers.

Wow! those rock formations are amazing - a bit like Australia's answer to Stonehenge (ha ha). Glad you're getting chilled and enjoying the sights. Love Mum xx

Love the photography!!! Especially the creative first shot! Is it just me or are the sacred stones a little reminiscent of 'Picnic at Hanging Rock?' Did it feel eerie there?
Keep up the good work! Love the other Mum xx
