Default Gippsland Goodness

A few CoVid soul-soothing days in Gippy.

no mobile reception
no WiFi
no TV or news
no world chaos or farking politics


some time on hand
some $$ in pocket
some paper maps
some new hiking boots
good talks and laughs with strangers in front of a Coonara up on the Grand Ridge Road.
prime rainforest solitude



From the ridges above Wonthaggi









Foster beach









Agnes Falls









Home base for a couple of nights, and jeez, what a place

Balook....it's a bad place if you don't like GREEN!














...and an awesome spot if you love eye-popping 2-course gourmet breakfasts
(Thomas, the Danish owner is a health-nut...apart from just being a nut )
The $20 food-feast includes a decent fresh-brewed coffee of your choice as well.
Who woulda thought...in a place like that??
