West Coast and South Australia

A vacation to take in the fine sights of the Great Ocean Road, plus a few days to show the boys South Australia. 

Great Ocean Road

This first stage was much appreciated once we got out of Melbourne and Geelong. In places the Great Ocean Road is very busy with tourists and large buses. Lorne is a popular delight and a timely stop for lunch.

A visit to the Twelve Apostles revealed that much has changed since I was there last in 1992. There is a large complex with a huge carpark and visitor centre; but oddly no cafe or souvenir shop. A number of buses had dropped off their load and the hordes of tourists made it seem busier than the streets of Melbourne.

But it’s still a beautiful place to visit.
