We were blessed with snow last week when we went to Mt. Baw Baw, it was Gabriel first encountered with snow. The first day the snow wasn't very thick but it was enough for tobogganing, the second day we saw white everywhere and Gabriel was blessed to see snowing for the first time in his life! However, if you check on the live cam on Mt. Baw Baw now, the snow had gone...really can't imaging it was covered with snow one week ago!
As the trip was planned in the last minutes, we didn't manage to get the accommodation at Mt. Baw Baw, luckily we were able to get one at Tanjil Bren, Moosehead Lodge, it was a 16km drive to Mt. Baw Baw. AUD$340 for a 6 pax. one night stay. Moosehead Lodge is self contains with kitchen, toilet facilities and the best part of it is the heating system is using big slow combustion wood burner! Is amazing how effective the wood burner heating system is if compared to the modern heating system!
The Moosehead Lodge is surrounded by big gum trees, it has beautiful view overlooking the valley of the mountains. Bird watching is one of the outdoor activities, with bird feeding seeds in hands they are not afraid to come up-close to you, not sure of the bird's name but you are able to find stunning combination of colours on their feathers, we saw blue-orange birds, and the below one was with red-green feathers.
...and there is no Wii-Fi connection, no telephone, the power is by solar system and some of the light are using gas, forget all the electric equipment because the power voltage is just 12V. Go and experience it, is refreshing for the soul!
A view from the window, is beautiful!
Is snowing! He was so amaze by the snow!
Happy sliding down the hill with toboggan!
Laying on the snow, feel so happy!
Kelly's Cafe, a simple cafe with creative design, I love their pumpkin soup to go with bread. It is in the middle of Mt. Baw Baw. If you want more from a meal, The Village Restaurant at the entrance of Mt. Baw Baw will be a better choice, it offers spectacular views and also takes booking for special occasions such as conferences and weddings.
