Tour bookings -- FREE Call 1800 174 045 Open every day (weather permitting) 10am-5pm (Summer Holidays) 11am-3pm (Winter) www.splitpointlighthouse.com.au 2197912-AN1712 handy INFO Carol McCarthy has been helping people plan their holidays for 30 years and is the director of Harvey World Travel's Drysdale, Leopold and Ocean Grove agencies on the Bellarine Peninsula. FAVOURITE PLACE TO VISIT IN THE REGION: Lake Elizabeth near Forest, I love the minty smell of the bush, the beautiful walk up to the lake and the hope of spotting a platypus. SECRET PLACE YOU LIKE: Edwards Point walk at St Leonards. YOUR LAST HOLIDAY: Mornington Sanctuary, The Kimberleys, pictured above. TOP TRAVEL TIP: I always pack a sarong. It is the most versatile item. It's useful as a covering for visiting shrines and temples and being appropriately respectful, even if you're not quite sure of the local protocols and traditions. It can be a curtain, a sheet, a towel or a sun dress and it takes up no space in a bag.
