at the Sapphire Coast

As we never get enough of travelling we took the chance to explore the surrounding area and headed off to the Sapphire Coast.
It seemed that the whole of Australia was on the move on this easter weekend and we didn't manage to find a spot to yourselfs.
We decided to stop at Mimosa Rocks National Park (5802 ha). Unfortunately we had to share the 12 campsites with a few youngsters - Tommy was not impressed and thought that this is way too crowded for our taste. But after a chilly night what a view to wake up to:
And at the end of the day we were fortunate enough that we just had to share the beach with a few Kangaroos for the morning swim.
As camping was not that fantastic and the weather was changing for the worse we decided to look for a B&B for the next night. After hiking Mount Dromedary we found one above the Central Tilba Fudge Shop. There is nothing better than a warm and cosy bed on a stormy and rainy night...
We also have to mention our dine out experience in Central Tilba. The only place in town where you can get something to eat is the Dromedary Hotel. On that evening it was crowded with very merry men celebrating ANZAC day from the early morning hours. Nicki, driven by hunger, kissed her way through the happy crowd directly into the kitchen. We tried not to get drunken by just breathing in the air of the hotel. If you still haven't got the picture, it was all very similar to the Walkabout Creek Hotel we all know from the Crocodile Dundee movie including the interior. Well, thats rural Australia!
