Day Five: Gippsland and the Mornington Peninsula

Bloody Victorian weather, it did it's best to blow the tent away last night and it's cold and raining today! Still at least the weather shouldn't matter too much for the next few days, and the sun through the rainclouds does make for a nice picture. Things start looking up when we find a place in Yarragon doing wine and cheese tasting, a nice entree before heading down the freeway to the Mornington peninsula for the main course. A fun day sampling the local wine follows, although the Pinon Noir isn't quite up to Central Otago standards. The weather's still pretty rubbish so we take a dip in the hot pools which is great- although again to someone accustomed to the quantity of thermal pools in NZ the price seems a bit steep. Still it's a nice way to unwind before heading into Melbourne to meet up with Eddie, who's kindly putting us up for the weekend.
