Gipsland holiday

We recently took a short holiday to the Gippsland Region in Victoria which is unique for its wilderness, rainforests, beaches, and rich farm land. We stopped off overnight at Bairnsdale, the western gateway to the Lakes and Wilderness region and then went on to stay at Gypsey Point which is only about 15km from the delightful small town of Mallacoota, built on one of the many inlets and home to a thriving abalone industry. The area is surrounded by national parks, with tall forests, ferns, cool clear waters, secluded beaches and quiet rivers. Our accommodation was set within what is a national park. The first picture was taken from the balcony of our unit and next is a picure of a kangaroo with baby joey whose family were frequent vistors. Fishing was obviously particually good as pelicans were in abundance and there was abundant bird life including flocks of rainbow lorikeets and galahs seen above feeding.

Kangaroos? Pelicans? Exotic birds? Awe-inspiring beauty?

You're a blessed man, Mr. Lindsay!

Thanks for sharing those photos. I'm smiling now!

What beautiful pictures you have posted of your holiday. They're quite incredible to see and I feel quite envious. Now why the heck didn't my parents move to Australia in 1953 rather than Canada? They must have made a mistake and got on the wrong boat.

Thanks for sharing something I've quite obviously missed.
