After leaving Eden we headed south west into Victoria and stopped overnight in Cape Conran National Park on the East Gippsland Coast. While the weather looked bleak, it was actually quite warm and humid and in the afternoon we went for a 5 or 6 km walk around the cape headland. There was an amazing boat ramp on the western side of the cape made on a little natural inlet. I went for a snorkel there as the park map showed it as a good snorkeling spot. I saw a couple of port jackson sharks and large rays, but the water was certainly a lot colder than 150km around the coast in Eden so I did not stay in for long.
We spent the night in a the National Park Campsite – the most expensive night on the trip so far – $39.10 and it did not even have hot showers! It did however have flushing toilets and a nice big saltwater “swimming pool”.
From Cape Conran, we stopped briefly at Marlo to get a photo of the mouth of the Snowy River, then headed inland on the Great Alpine Road towards out next stop-over – Omeo
