The Sounds of Frogs at Night and Roosters in the Morning

Story by Jarrod Andrews

As you drive through the gates and towards the tiny home that is positioned on a slight hill overlooking a small valley with a dam and a paddock full of cows, you can’t help but notice all the lush green new regrowth coming from the black charred three trunks from this fire effected area. This is just amazing to see how the Aussie bush recovers so quickly and gets back to looking its best in no time at all. This stunning loft bedroom (super fun) tiny stay is positioned in a great spot to explore the surrounds with plenty to do if that’s what you’re after. One popular spot is the Buchan Caves which is just down the road (Heads up you need to book a ticket in advance) or if you like ocean/lakes like me Lakes Entrance and Bairndale are also a short drive away.

It was a very wet morning on my stay so I decided to delay my planned hike and find a nice cozy county pub with a warm fire place and of course being by the ocean for some local fish and chips. After the rain eased, I set off on my little hike to The Entrance called Entrance Walk which was a 5km/1-2h return hike on a pleasant journey through coastal bush on sand and boardwalks on the edge of Gipsland lakes to The Entrance. Along the way I spotted colorful rosella’s and at The Entrance plenty of seals to keep me entertained.

Silt Jetties at Eagle Point

Something that really spiked my interest from Google earth was an uber interesting spot called Silt Jetties. This is something I’d not seen before anywhere so I had to check it out. These naturally formed silt banks run for over 8km making them the 2nd largest silt jetties in the entire world and the longest in the Sothern hemisphere which is pretty cool. You can drive all the way out to the end of the jetty. Although keep in mind that is a gravel/sand road and has a few potholes as well but you will see Kangaroos and plenty of interesting birdlife on the drive out to the end of the jetty.

Stargazing

Sarsfield VIC 3875, Australia

When I’m in the county with clear sky, it’s a given that I'll be sitting outside looking at the stars and that’s exactly what I did after cooking dinner back at the tiny home. Looking at the stars and listening to the frogs sing at night was a great end...

When I’m in the county with clear sky, it’s a given that I’ll be sitting outside looking at the stars and that’s exactly what I did after cooking dinner back at the tiny home. Looking at the stars and listening to the frogs sing at night was a great end to what started as a wet and wild day that cleared up perfectly in the end.
