Day 1, Saturday 4th May 2013 Glen Cromie, Vic
A nice early start, we drop our cat off at the cattery at 9:30 and we arrive at Glen Cromie campground in Drouin West at 10:45. We always get lost finding this park. So, as we leave the Princes Highway and the Garmin doesn’t have the park listed, we key it into Google Maps. We then have Gabbi Garmin and Mrs. Google talking over each other vying for our attention, one wanting us to turn right and the other requesting a left.
S&M have arrived and are already in the process of setting up so thankfully the camp manager doesn’t ‘read the riot act’ to us. The park in a bend of the Tarago River is very pretty and has been in operation since 1895, however, there is a full A4 page of Do’s and Don’ts or to be more precise Don’ts, as to how we should behave and what facilities incur extra fees. The park fee is $30 per night. Apparently, we should not have arrived until 1:00pm, this mistake alone would normally incur an extra fee. The site is already empty so we can’t see why this is such a problem. But it has the management on edge. Last year when our caravan club came to check the park out they were charged $4 each just to walk around and look and when they returned recently for their muster and we visited them for drinks we were also charged $2 each to visit. It seems that we’re in for a bit of fun here.
