We endeavoured to drag the kids away from the luxuries of power with DS games, DVD movies going and eventually we were able to get them moving. Our first stop was the view of Blue Lake from Hoo Hoo lookout, which gives the best view of the Lake, we also took in Leg of Mutton lake which is now all dried up and full of trees, we then headed to Valley lake and the recreation area so that the kids could have a play at the playground. On the way we stopped for Rosalee to take a photo from one of the lookouts, it was on this drive that we went passed the derelict Old Hospital building that is still standing, but obviously looks as though it is frequently vandalised by locals.
After a play we returned to our caravan to have lunch we then headed out to see Umpherston Sinkhole gardens, which is quite interesting and would have been pretty cool back in the 1890’s as it had water still in it and you could go on a boat to the island in the middle, we then headed into town to see the cave garden and let the kids hang out in the library.
The Library was unlike any I had been in they had a cafe in the front, live musicians playing, three sets of computer gaming areas, a TV playing kids shows, a kids reading area in the form of a limestone cave where our kids hung out for a couple of hours. There was also a bike that people were knitting covers over. It was very vibrant and interesting Library and well worth the visit.
