The pool was lovely, if a touch cold, and we had great fun (well, two of us did!) jumping in off the rocks
When we returned up the track, the snake was no longer guarding the path. Not sure where it had got to. Thankfully never saw it again....
Interestingly, when we were in the car park preparing to leave, a car full of four guys, each with leather gaiters protecting their shins, arrived back at their ute with about half a dozen hessian bags, which we assumed to be (quite big) snakes they had hunted....
We had been driving quite a lot and knew there were few places of any interest coming up soon so we stocked up on supplies and headed south knowing that we'd come across somewhere to camp soon on the side of the Bruce Highway. We did. It was called Brandy Goblet. No idea where it was and none of the camp books featured it. A couple approaching retirement had bopught themselves a plot of land, built a nine hole pitch and putt and, very recently, put on half a dozen camping pitches. They had a clubhouse for the golf and there was little else around. They were a great couple and were happy to take $22.50 off us for our three pitches, to include three rounds of golf. That was possibly the best evening's camping we've had so far. Bought a couple of beers from their bar, cooked some gourmet meal involving chicken and pasta on a single burner next to our tents and sat and watched the most star filled sky you could possibly imagine until very late. I was even looking, for the first time in my entire life, in the right direction to see a couple of shooting stars.....
The following morning, we lingered for a round of golf on a course which, it should be said, will improve (a lot!!) with age. Experience and skill eventually came through and I ended up whoopping those two youngsters..... A great time was had by all.
