Taking the midnight flight….
It is a 3.5-hour drive to our accomodation for the first three days, and Hubby is our only driver, so we take a break at the biggest free entry playground in Australia!
Apple Fun Park at Donnybrook. It’s a big lovely playground, but so sunny at 9am!
Our home for the next three days is Pemberton Farm Chalets. We choose the four-bedroom chalet as there are seven of us including my parents-in-law. It is spacious and comes with a fully-equipped kitchen. But there is only one bathroom.
It is actually brighter than it looks in the photo
The kids spend most of their time drawing and reading at the dining table since we don’t switch on the tv anyway.
Our 8-seater : )
The farm has animals of course but it is not a working farm, so there are not that many animals.
There is supposed to be a feeding session in the morning, but we didn’t see anyone around when we came out at the stated time. Can feed the animals on our own anytime though.
The chalets shown here are the 2-bedroom ones, right in front of the pasture. Our chalet is more secluded, a few minutes’ stroll away.
On Day 2, we visited the Gloucester Tree.
The Cascades. Nice place but not spectacular…
Lunch at Hidden River Estate Winery
Many sheep outside the winery
The Ngs 😀
We have a very leisurely itinerary, so it’s a good thing the farm has quite a few things to entertain the kids.
Day 3 We took the Pemberton Tram through the forest
Lunch at Lavender and Berry Farm. We choose to dine outdoors to enjoy the scenery while the kids play.
Hmmm, does our trip sound a bit boring so far? Sigh…. ya, indeed it is not very exciting. Anyway I shall do up the posts for the remaining days before I pen down some of my thoughts on the trip.
