We continue south to our next stop at Metung, driving on the princes highway we leave the coast and drive through forests and vast open farmland, this is big country, there's fewer towns along this part of the route just miles of single lane road. As we leave New South Wales and enter Victoria we pull off the highway for a break at Gypsy Point a small settlement at the upper reaches of the Mallacoota inlet
It's now 32 degrees, a very peaceful spot with beautiful lake views, walks and great for bird watching. Whilst here we take a drive through Mallacoota where river, lake and sea meet, secluded beaches, plenty of wildlife, walking, boating etc. After our rest it's back on the road, a couple of hours later we drive through the Lakes Entrance a beach and lakeside town with plenty of shops, restaurants fishing boats bringing in their catch and trips out on charter boats, before we reach Metung. We arrive to our lovely apartment overlooking Chinamans Creek in Bancroft Bay on the Gippsland Lakes district, very tranquil, relaxing and peaceful, this area is where five rivers end their journey from the 'Snowy Mountains' and form a vast expanse of water tucked in behind the spectacular Ninety Mile Beach.
