The Great Ocean Road

We’re starting the drive along the Great Ocean Road, the world’s second most beautiful drive (according to the literature from the local tourist board). Although it can be done in a couple of days, we’re planning to take a couple of weeks, by staying 4 or 5 days in various towns, and basically taking it slooowly. And today was a great example – we managed to drive just 20 kilometres along it, from Torquay to Anglesea (yes, there really are Australian towns, I’m not making it up). To slow ourselves down, we spent half an hour in Torquay looking for a suitable cabin, then stopped for a picnic lunch at Point Addis, looking out over cliffs and sea covering half a dozen shipwrecks from the 19th century. But after that exhausting drive, we stopped in Anglesea caravan park and got no further! We’re now tucked up in an identical cabin to last night, where we intend to stay for the next 5 days. I’m sure that there’s a lot to see and do (open cast coal mine tour anyone?)
