From Eden we continued along the coast passing through Merimbula and entered the Bournda National Park where we found a super camp sites called Hobart Beach. Set in thick forest we found a spot among a number of other campers. The facilities were rustic but were clean and all we needed. Niki wandered over to the toilet and was surprised when a large monitor lizard came out of the bushes and passed close by. The lizard was about two metres long, its claws as long as my fingers. These lizards can be dangerous but we were keen to get a photo and some video so ventured quite close. We had seen a great deal of wildlife on this journey, but this was like being in Jurassic Park.
Small green Bell Minor birds sat high in the trees and sounded like bells being rung as they called out, quite strange. With lots of kangaroos passing through the camp as the sun went down, we really were camping wild and enjoying the experience.
After a good nights sleep we visited a friend of Niki's in Merimbula, returning for a second night to our wild camping spot.
It seems I've been travelling for most of my life.
