A Trip to Halls Gap
After all that, we decided to go for drinks at the Paper Scissors Rock . This bar gets packed. Am not much of a drinker and Rob was driving so we shared the beer paddle and a charcuterie board. Was good but the bread was on the hard side. Still, everything else was nice. It was enough to fill us up anyway that we didn't end up having any dinner afterwards.
The next morning the cockatoos weren't around but we had this guy instead! The next door folks gave us some grain crackers to feed him. Very friendly this kanga, definitely used to humans.
After packing up, we went back to the same breakfast place we went to the day before; "Livefast Cafe". Great food, really friendly staff and good coffee. Rob had the eggs with extras and I decided to try the Hotcakes, all very yummy. The chilli hot chocolate was very nice too.
Before going home though, we decided to check out the J Ward gaol and lunatic asylum at Ararat. You can only visit this place in a tour though, Turns out that people stole stuff from the museum in the past so you can't explore this place on your own anymore. It is always annoying when a few bad eggs ruin the experience for everyone else. The tour was interesting though, our tour guide provided a lot of engaging stories and fun (as fun as an asylum could be) anecdotes.
