It was still a grey and drear day, but there was crispness in the air that could indicate a clear night sky and sunshine tomorrow.
Right in behind the Mount Gambier town hall are the Cave Gardens. I expect they look better in mid to late spring. It is funny to have a sink hole right in the middle of town. We were a bit underwhelmed by the garden.
Some prats had thrown a large real estate agent's board (why not a real estate agent?) and a shopping trolley into the sink hole.
The Lady Nelson was a ship that was blown out of a volcano 5000 years ago and landed in Mount Gambier. I lie. You look it up. But there was a Lady Nelson Discovery Centre where we discovered little.
I first heard of the Umpherston Sink Hole from Cazzie, perhaps a couple of years ago now. I have something in common with Cazzie. We both like camping trips, splutter! Well, she does.
I could see that the Umpherston Sink Hole could look quite glorious midsummer, but even in the winter you can imagine how it might look.
We tried one hotel for dinner and it was packed. South Australia school holidays and kids were dining for free. I think it was the one where Jayne disgraced herself . We had an ok meal at the afore mentioned externally quite lovely hotel which was actually the Mount Gambier Hotel. We were early to bed as the next day we were Adelaide bound.
