Travelling around Australia in a motorhome. A story of our travels starting from NSW then through Queensland, across to Northern Territory and Western Australia, then to South Australia, Victoria and finally across the seas to Tasmania. We have enjoyed everywhere we have visited and look forward to setting off again in our motorhome.

Apollo Bay 31 March 2007

Drove across to the coast through more rugged mountains covered with tall gum trees on a road only leading downwards! For the first time it reminded us of the east coast. The hills gave way to rich flood plains with lowing dairy cattle – very picturesque! Arrived in Apollo Bay, an attractive town arching around a sandy bay and surrounded
by nearly green hills! Set up camp and eagerly awaited for Katie and Carl to arrive to spend the night and weekend together. We had a lovely time with them eating our usual assortment of visitor food which includes lots of no, no’s! We settled down to share a special bottle of wine that Neil gave us for this trip. The quality was lost on no one and we struggled with the follow on wine! It was fantastic Neil! Think we have learnt what’s what about wine now we have visited all the wineries!

apollo bay is where nat and i wanted to sleep in the car on our first road trip to the great ocean road,(we splurged our accomodation allowance on a posh dinner) but it was so windy the car rocked and instead we drove and drove through the night and ended up crashing asleep on sunrise in the 12 apostles, we will both never forget that town!!
