Mount Gambier-Beachport-Robe-Kingston-Jacks Point-Tailem Bend-Hahndorf
Started day with excellent coffee in Mount Gambier, and visit to Blue Lake lookout; Blue Lake, more a steely winter grey. Headed to Beachport where tourist info folks were super helpful. Did the scenic drive including the Pool of Siloam, which is reputedly 7 times saltier than sea (misnamed Beachport Lake on Google Maps). Delicious Aussie pie for lunch. Robe our next stop, and a visit to the rocky cliffs at The Obelisk (err, red and white striped concrete cone!). NW along the Corrong coast – flat, swampy land – eerily beautiful. We stopped at Jacks Point (obviously), and didn’t see the pelicans, but even better, saw grey kangaroos up close and personal. Stopped for night at Hahndorf, settled by German settlers, and centre of wine region. More glamping – cabin – and hearty meal at German Arms. Great day!
