^rad^'s adventures driving around South Eastern Australia
Day 3 - Thursday January 5th, 2006
Geelong - Mount Gambier
Before departing we have breakfast at banjos bakery, it is very cheap, but pretty crappy really.
The blue lake - mount gambiers premier attraction, the lake is inside an extinct volcano, which apparently makes it unnaturally blue, due to the aliens that live down there
Some dorky guy got in the photo again..its quite windy!
Dinner is great! I think it was called the blue frog cafe, but its not like a normal cafe, more of a night spot with restaurant. I have a mixed grill and its all really good, very happy with my choice.
Day 4 - Friday January 6th, 2006
Mount Gambier - Adelaide
The last day of our short holiday, not far to drive today, so no need to leave early.
Looking up out of the sinkhole
The sinkhole garden, I believe those are hydranges, but I know nothing about gardening other than those are plants that need 5 megalitres of water a day
Just out of Mount Gambier is the Tantanoola caves, Tantanoola sounds a lot like Chatanooga, and not having been to Chatanooga, maybe it is!
Near the entrance to the caves, looking over the pine forests and if you look closely you can see a wind farm on the horizon.
Stalagmites or Stalagtites, whatever they are dont touch them! The ranger would probably shoot you
Random Cave shot
2nd Random Cave shot
I decide to take some long exposures without flash, which gives great results, this is a pool of water with the roof reflected.
Apparently this is one of two wheelchair accessible caves in Australia
The non flash shots are so much better than the flash ones, people around me are looking at me like I am weird, balancing my camera on things and waiting for 30 seconds or so
The last picture of the holiday!
And so after the drive back to Adelaide another holiday is over, a short holiday at short notice, but we crammed a lot in.
