2012 Victorian Holiday – Whipstick State Park Near Bendigo

Our first stop on this trip was near Bendigo in the Whipstick State Park Camping Ground. We left home on the Yorke Peninsula at about 7am and arrived, 1000km later, at the camping ground at 6-30pm. Lucky it was daylight saving or we would have struggled to set up on time. It took us an hour to set up the camper, this being the first time in a few years we had used it. There were a few caravans on the far side of the camping area and unfortunately the peace was disturbed by one of them running a generator half the night. The kangaroos and birds did not seem to mind too much, nor the frogs in the pond at the edge of the ground. The large dam, which Pamela dubbed Pobblebonk after the frog calls which were a crescendo throughout the day and night.

One of the highlights of the region was the Bendigo pottery, well hidden but a maze of pottery by artists and sculptors with demonstrations. We spent a few hours there being inspired.
