We had a morning to occupy ourselves and enjoyed a road trip through the irrigated areas to the north of town visiting:
- Ivanhoe Cafe – breakfasted on mango smoothies and variations on brekkie eggs, sausage and toast combinations. Sitting at picnic tables under the wonderfully shady mango trees was a delight!
- The Sandalwood factory – watched promotional videos explaining this industry (producing Indian sandalwood trees for use in cosmetics and religious ceremonies)
- A Zebra rock stone art studio – Stone Art Gallery
- Ivanhoe Crossing (closed)
Our drive was of course punctuated by stops to get a closer view of local birdlife treats!
