Visit to Falls Creek Part 1

We got back early from our trip today, so I'd thought I'd do some blogging.

A typical Aussie bush landscape on our way to our destination.

The local cows were a little suprised with our presence, but they resumed their feeding shortly after that.

This is a lookout point for Mt. Bogong. It says that the mountain is the tallest in Victoria at 1986 meters.

We reached the mountain in 30 mins. The trees are bare because of a forest fire a few months ago.

Some shrubs growing along the side of the road look quite pretty.

View of Falls Creek town.

There were some nice flowers growing in the planter boxes next to the apartment blocks.

We booked return tickets to the top of the mountain for $10 each using cable cars.

This slow, relaxing ride is an important component of your visit to Falls Creek.

To those who're afraid of heights, a cable car can be a llittle daunting.

Leaving the town behind us.

The hills are covered in fresh, green grass in summer.

About halfway to the top.

The view from the top is amazing ! But alas, our experience could've been magical if not for the....

...FLIES ! Yes, Imagine tons of them swarming around you and landing on your clothes and skin. Oh yes, the big ones do bite ! Its just their way of being friendly to visitors. Fortunately, we didn't eat our lunch on top of the mountain.

The indegenious plants on top of the mountain. Yes, this picture looks very nice, but imagine trying to take it with flies landing on your face and mouth !

I've just made it convenient for all of you to enjoy the beautiful scenery without the flies !

The lone hut.

Descending back to the town.

We chose to eat lunch (chicken sandwich) on the way down from the cable car. It was ecstacy!

Whew, thats all for my post today. Part 2 will be published soon. Cheers !
