Where the River meets the Sea
Next stop - Pebble Point, our home for the weekend. The safari style tents are nestled upon a hill overlooking the wetlands. We got chatting with the care-taker and he clued us up about a lookout 5 minutes walk towards the coast with “the best view in the world”. As we approached the cliff-edge overlooking the ocean we were greeted by wild winds and sea foam whipping up and hitting our faces, completely invigorating the senses.
Climbing into a big warm bed and watching the ominous grey clouds roll in was a truly unique experience. We woke to the sound of plentiful birdlife. You really are at one with nature in this little pocket of the world.
Pebble Point is waiting for you only 3 hours drive along the Great Ocean Road from Melbourne. Each sturdy, safari-style tent has its own private modern bathroom with floor to ceiling glass so you can enjoy the views at all times. Have a hot shower whilst watching the rain fall! The tents are super luxurious, with wooden floorboards and a king size bed with electric blankets, perfect for getting cosy and unwinding amid the wild nature. The sheltered deck is a great spot to sit and watch the world go by. We enjoyed many cups of hot tea here, absorbing the view across Princetown Wildlife Reserve. The surrounding shrubbery is rich with bird life. All of your senses are tuned in to the here and now. We used the communal facilities to cook, enjoy a warm fire and to chill out. This one-of-a-kind spot has everything you could need for a weekend of nature and unwinding. Just pack a good book, a warm coat and head to the edge of the world!...
