We started our day early and headed to Ida Bay Bush Railway.. It was a 2-hour train ride and there were 2 timings – 10am and 12.30pm.
We reached our destination at about 11 plus and decided to get our tickets first.. We got the tickets from the little cafe where we had our lunch.. We saw a book which they placed outside the cafe.. They were petitioning to get state funds to help maintain the railway..
It started drizzling as we were eating but the rain stopped when we were done.. We walked around to explore the area while waiting for the train..
We saw a rainbow as soon as we were on the way! Seems like we see rainbows more easily in Australia than in Singapore as we also saw one when we went to Perth last June..
We explored the beach for a while..
We took a short drive over and were lucky that we managed to catch the last tour which would start at 3.15pm..
The Newdegate Cave which we went to seemed smaller than the one we went to in Perth.. I’m impressed by how the Australians take care of the caves.. We were told not to touch any of the formations as the natural oil secretion from our hands would ‘kill’ the formations..
Tomorrow, we would be exploring Port Arthur..
