6 April 2018: Eden to Mallacoota
A short 1-hour drive south from Eden to picture perfect Mallacoota but not without a detour to Gypsy Point. This was a must as my Croatian father always references us as his gypsies. Gypsy point is a quiet fishing location with a resort and boat ramp. After setting up camp at the Foreshore Holiday Park I went looking for a place to kayak. I went to Belka Beach but the water was too shallow. Instead I headed out to Croajingolong National Park for an afternoon paddle through what is called The Narrows, a body of water which links the top lake to the bottom lake. The paddle was choppy and with only a few inlets to seek smooth water so we turned back against a strong head wind. The wind dropped in the afternoon and the lake became like a mirror pond. We prepared the curry and went for a walk along the foreshore where loads of people sat just chilling around a fire pit with family and friends. One of the pluses of Mallacoota Foreshore Holiday Park is that you can have a fire, pets and access to a boat mooring. The foreshore caravan park is a huge park with loads of options for camping.
