We left Venus Bay and moved on to Philip Island. A shorter drive then normal. We went grocery shopping and park as close as you could get to the beach for lunch and leisure. We enjoyed pizza on the beach. Livia had her midday nap in Tuppy and we enjoyed the sun and worked on the plan for the next few days.
We had to scare of a Porcupine which was spotted by a friendly Aussie under the motor home and we drove a few minutes to a simple camping without any amenities for the night. It was very beautiful with a pool, horses and a large playground.
Monday – Wednesday
Again we decided to leave the ‘grassy and leafy’ area and get closet to the sea. So easy to forget hay fewer, yet so anoying when you can’t breath properly through the night. The freshly cut grass and blossoming flower where to much for us. But we also found a nice camping with a beach exit.
We regretfully discovered that the (world) famous Penguin Parade around this time of year only starts around 21.00. Too late with Livia. This parade is made up of the penguins emerging by hundreds or even thousands from the sea onto the beach. However we found very different penguins :-).
Tuesday we visited a chocolate factory. It was well setup and entertaining for young and old. A lot of chocolate devouring we left satisfied…
Wednesday we where on the road again. We decided to ‘under cut’ Melbourne and took the ferry from Sorrento to Queenscliffbringing brining us close to the Great Ocean Road.
Thursday and Friday
The Great Ocean Road is 244km strech of road (B100) Following the coast between Torquay and Allansford. You could easily drive it in a day but recommended is to take a week with all the beautiful sites it offers. We decided to take it slow.
We stayed for two days in Anglesea. The camping has many beach exits and you could walk for miles and miles on the beach there.
We continued the journey and with many short stops at look-out points we came to Marengo beach. It is beautiful there! We enjoyed the sea, beach and better then predicted weather.This entry was posted in Australia
