Australia 25 February: Orbost - Bairnsdale
Lakes and Ocean
Our day begins at Orbost Primary School. Councillor Mark Reeves from the East Gipsland Shire Council is there to meet us and speak to the students. He is also a member of the Country Fire Authority.
Five kilometres down the road we visit Newmerella Primary School where we are invited to make our presentation in their Monday morning assembly.
The boys team celebrate Goncalo's birthday by finding the local ice cream shop. Akrura treats everyone to some delicious healthy gelato made on the premises.
Thank you to Matt at Bairnsdale Main Motel for offering us rooms for the night. His children come out to greet the torch and take it for a spin.
