Easter at Lake Gairdner

Easter from March 24th – 28th 2016 was spent with our youngest daughter Fiona, her hubby Jason and their two children Charlie and Ellie, along with Jason’s daughter Olivia (Ollie) at Lake Gairdner, Moina. A charming little free camp on the edge of Lake Gairdner. It is also used as a stopover for backpackers visiting Cradle Mountain who baulk at the prices charged by the caravan park near the gates to Tassie’s premier tourist attraction. Its a shame most of them are not self contained.

Jason is into gold prospecting and gem fossicking, so this was an ideal spot with lots of old mines in the area.

A good family weekend was had by all, even though we were above 500m and the weather was a bit cool.
