Thetraveljunkie.org – Worldwide e-scooter use is booming, forecast to surpass half a billion rides globally this year. What a fun day! Ferry from Sorrento to Queenscliff, a picnic lunch by the sea at Point Lonsdale then exploring beautiful wetlands by electric scooter. We stoppped at Lake Victoria, a shallow sub-coastal lagoon forming part of the Swan Bay systems of wetlands on the Eastern Bellarine Peninsula, south-east of Geelong. It is part of the Lonsdale Lakes Nature Reserve administered by Parks Victoria. Lake Victoria, although it varies in water level, provides a relatively stable environment for waterbirds, maintaining its high salinity even when full and never drying out in summer. Saltmarsh is the dominant vegetation around the lakeshore. It is a natural lake but has been modified by shell-grit mining. Water enters the lake through urban run-off, rainfall and slow seepage.
Ending a perfect day with a pod of 7 or 8 dolphins swimming alongside the Searoad ferries as we sailed into Sorrento. Lucky us!
Happy Sustainable Travels!
