We left Narooma as early as usual and headed to the beautiful village of Central Tilba. Most of the shops we wanted to visit didn’t open till 10, so we found a quaint little tea house called Teapot Cafe. We had a scrumptious breakfast surrounded by a quirky and eclectic collection of what could only be called ‘stuff’!
By then, the shops were open, the scooter was out, so off we went! The most interesting shop for both of us was Tilba Treehouse. We browsed through several others before setting off further south.
Bega Heritage Cheese centre – not as interesting as I thought it would be!
From there, we drove up hill and down dale, crossing the border into Victoria and skirting around the lower reaches of the Snowies. We eventually stopped in the small town of Orbost, where the Visitor’s Centre’s outer shell is a vertical slab hut construction – fascinating.
We reached our rustic B&B, The Goat and Goose, in time to appreciate the spectacular view out across Bass Strait. We had fish and chips at one of the locals on the Lakes Entrance foreshore, followed by a quiet evening, reading and planning ahead.
