We cut short our stay at Tuross by one night and have now caught up on our timing, apart from losing that hour due to daylight saving in NSW. Don’t get me going on about daylight saving, the afternoon just goes on for ever and you don’t know when to stop happy hour as the sun is still up.We don’t have this problem in Queensland of course.
Tuross was a very pleasant if short stop. Camped right on the beach front. It is a strip type set up along the beach line. Only problem was that we were right at one end and it was about 300m to get to the amenities. Homealone had to time trips carefully, Allthego was able to be a little more pragmatic, particularly in the early morning hours.
Had a great lunch at the Pickled Octopus Cafe overlooking Tuross Lake. The fresh Tuross Lake oysters were something special; Allthego is generally not really into oysters.
Apart from the natural scenery there is not a lot going on here at Tuross. A quiet peaceful town. But two tourist highlights standout. One, the stone cairn and plaque commemorating Mel Gibson’s grandmother Eva Mylott who was born here The other a grassy mound in which a whale is buried, washed up on the shore it found its final resting place under earth and grass.
Our last night here saw a full moon rising over the ocean behind One Tree Hill and in the west the sun was setting in a red blaze. Quite spectacular sunset and moon up!
After our couple of nights here we set off for Merimbula intending to stop in Central Tilba Tilba to taste some cheese, the fridge is in need of topping up.
