Camping on Australia Day

After the amazing camping experience on NSW, we decided to celebrate the "Australia day" long weekend in another camping. We went to "Surfside Holiday Park" at Warrnambool. Warrnambool is a city along the Great Ocean Road. The camping site was full but it didn't feel like that, everything was clean and comfortable with a direct access to the beach. We travel around Port Fairy, Towers Hills reserve and Nigretta Falls (Pics in the next posts).  We decided to come back to Warrnambool between June - September to watch the Whales. Almost every year female Southern Right Whales return to the Warrnambool's Logans Beach to calve. The whales often can be seen a hundred metres from the shore. Highly recommended camping park.

Melbourne Springvale Market

Melbourne Springvale Market also known as Springvale Shopping Centre. 
Fills like a little market in the far east, multi color fruits, unknown mysterious smells, lots of Chinese signs, full of fresh seafood and original Asian products. Everything is fresh and cheap.

From now on say "sausage sizzle" instead of hot-dog

Since I was a child, we use to eat hot-dogs in a long bun, this was the only combination for sausage serve I know. 

Here in Australia, I met the sausage sizzle. 

Sausage sizzle is a community event (it can be a local sport game, farmer market or just a collection of  money for some cause in front of your local supermarket), So its a small event with the combination of hot Aussie sun and a barbecue ("a sizzling Barbie"). 

In the sausage sizzle you can find a stand that prepare and sale barbecued sausages and served them on a single slice of  bread with sliced onion and sauces for your choice. 
You can find Sausage sizzle stands at every corner especially on the weekends, it very cheep and testy. 

What do you need to prepare? so easy...

  • White Bread 
  • Barbecued Sausages = known as as "Snags" in Australia 
  • Sliced Onions
  • Sauces (Ketchup/Tomato sauce, BBQ sauce and yellow mustard)
  • Paper napkins

and wallah...

Our guest for today - Baby Red back

Red back is one of the poisonous spiders in Australia.  
The female red back's bite can cause serious illness and death for young children. We saw this young female outside our house during her meal, it ate a small ant that didn't have any chance against it. 

Juvenile Female

This baby spider is going to be black all over when it grows up.

My first camping in NSW, Australia and some of the stunning views we saw on our way...
We saw some views that were such an exiting and breathtaking sights that the photos doesn't express the indescribable beauty.
