Sunday 17th April
Had a real good sleep and woke nice and early so got up and then saw it was only 4.30 am so actually went back to bed for couple of hours, bed very hard. Up now 7.30 am just took our time and had breakfast, packed our lunch, Thermos and headed off at 10.30 am for Forrest, there are some water falls up there.
Stevenson Falls is a pretty waterfall nestled deep in the Colac Otway Region near the town of Barramunga. What a lovely drive up to this spot, the walk was easy and Fungi along the way, so many different types, the sun has been out today so that’s a real bonus. We were going to go to Sabine Falls but it was 3.30 pm and we as it was a 5 hour walk down to the falls gave it a miss today, so headed back to Apollo Bay, getting pretty cold now. We had tea and made extra so the leftovers would be our lunch for tomorrow.
Saturday 16th April
Had a very early start, got to Kate’s at 4.30 am and we headed to the airport, Brisbane. Had a good flight. Got sorted at the arrival as we had foods to declare, was no problems and then went and picked up the hire car. Once out on the freeway OMG, bumper to bumper for 5 km just getting out of the area, once on the Princess Highway all was good. Called into Lorne and got some food items for lunch to have at Kate’s Grandma’s, we chattered and had lunch together then headed off at 3 pm to get to Apollo Bay, called into the information Center to get pamphlets on places and things to do and read up on them. We got to our cabin feeling tired and unloaded the car, had a cuppa, then got organised. Bit chilly after our Qld climate, 10 deg but fine. Bed at 9 pm.
One of the many wee Fungi’s along the tracks. This is about the height of your little finger.
