After paying $10 to gain access to Lake Burrendong State Park we were very disappointed to find that the main attraction, the water slide, only operated on weekends! The only pool that was open was the toddler pool that was about 20cm deep. We thought ok, lets swim in the lake … um … no … blue green algae may be present in the water! So plan “c” find a BBQ and make pancakes/pikelets only to find the BBQ had been out of service since January this year!
After getting over the huge disappointment, the older girls took the dogs for a walk and came back feeling better! Amazing how a walk can improve your mood! We cooked some pancakes/pikelets on the gas cooker and enjoyed the view.
The girls got out their toys and set up an elaborate game at the tables under the gazebo, even using the old BBQ as part of the area!
After the pikelets were finished, and the game was over … it was time for ….
A fun game in the toddler pool!
I would not recommend this State Park to anyone … unless you are happy to look at the view.
After drying off we headed out of the Park to find a place to stop for the night. We noticed at the turn off for the Wellington Caves some interesting looking sculptures so we turned in to check it out.
We decided it was as good as any a place to spend the night!
