On route to Mount Gambier we spent time at the sea side town of Beachport.
The jetty here a hive of activity as fishermen bring in the lobsters all throughout the day. Refrigerated trucks wait for the fresh catches and then transport them to Adelaide, Robe and other towns.
Couldn't resist. The local co-op let us choose our lobster. Then he cooked, cut and cleaned for us ready for dinner tonight. At $85 a kilo the service was great!
Driving around the town we found the Salt pool - 7 times saltier than the ocean. No one was keen enough to test the floating properties today.
Spectacular beaches and coast line.
Arriving at Mount Gambier late in the afternoon the girls made some friends at the jumping pillow. Tried the pool but even heated the temps still too cool to get into the water.
After dinner we went to see the caves/sinkholes lit up at night. Magnificent the gardens.
The City Cave had a dream time projection movie one the cave and on a building up above. Bit spooky for Kayce with the eerie images and haunting words of the spirit still living below.
The Umpherston sinkhole was less frightening with possums scattered throughout the rocks accepting fruit and bread given to them by the tourists.
They were very friendly, a definite highlight of the trip for the girls.
