Drizzled during the night so we will get ready and soon as the canvas dries then the camper can be wound up. The wallabies are hanging around. Its 15 deg in shorts so not bad, we got away at 10 am. Heading to Eddiestone Point and Lighthouse. What a lovely spot, we’er only here for a look. Fabulous photography and things to see, but no camping big enough for us. Called into Tomahawk, another fishing village and van park. Staying at Waterhouse Conservation Park at Little Lagoon. This is on the North coast heading towards Devonport.
Eddiestone Point Lighthouse at Eddiestone Point. Boat ramp, Eddiestone Point. Road through to Tomahawk. Tomahawk. Little Lagoon at Waterhouse Conservation, we felt like the Jed Clamberts. Little Lagoon. Bush camping at its best. 🙂 Little Lagoon.
Called into Mawson Bay, what a lovely wee fishing village, we did call into others on our way but all very similar this one we spent some time, the rock formations and just the feel about the place. we carried onto Marrawah stopping at what we wanted to look at, lovely rough coast line. Camping at Marrawah is a very small area, by the sea, toilets very handy but our set up is to big for the area, probably couple of vans and a few tents would be about it.

We got sorted nice and early this morning as we are going to the Cape Lighthouse. Weather was good, windy and bit chilly but had a great time, Coast line here is so rough and beautiful. Saw a Albino Wallaby, there are quiet a few here on the island, the drive back to van park was interesting scenery, the island is bigger than I thought. We have been staying at the van park but a mistake in our booking gave us a very flash house for a night so we moved base.
Seen better days Here at a lookout pulled in this beautiful car. HMAS Canberra ship anchoring in the bay for the night. One of the many wee walking tracks, just nice. View from the cape Bruny light station Cape Bruny Lighthouse, the kids walking up in the bushes on the path. This had 1836 A.D. on the front, it is not working now and cant be used by the public to look inside, shes getting old. View from the light house. Incredible coast line, all the Basalt rock formations. Albino Wallaby, no Kangaroos on Bruny.
Sadly our wonderful trip has come to it’s last day but we will be taking it all in along the way and stopping for that odd photo, as we do. We packed up and left the cabin at 10 am. Took our time and lots of stops to see the many wonderful views along this Great Ocean Road. Traffic was very heavy so made stopping a bit difficult at times. This whole area is a photographer dream. The weather was very overcast and grey skies. These images are just a sample of what there is to see, to many to put into this site but will upload more into my Gallery soon.
This wee child was playing with the water coming in and out, it was quiet rough, but being a kid, what a lot of fun.
Here is the beginning of the Great Ocean Road, quiet a magnificent entrance to a remarkable drive.
This is the Split Point Light house at Airley’s inlet, along the Great Ocean Road.
Queenscliff Light house down at Queenscliff on the Peninsula out from Geelong, Victoria.
This has been a very long day but incredible. We went and dropped the hire car off and flew back to Queensland, getting into the airport in Qld at 11.40 pm, the flight was a bit bumpy and we are very tired with lots of smiles on our faces. Until the next trip, :)))))
Heading to Cape Otway and lighthouse. Maits rest, a very beautiful spot, only up the road from where we are staying, we called in and did the circuit walk without our cameras to see what it is like, very nice, we will be back. Weather permitting. Carried on to the Cape Otway, real nice view, getting overcast. Did all the sight seeing bits, a lot of history here.
Very majestic as you walk up the hill. Otway Lighthouse, Victoria.
We climbed up and this is the view from the lighthouse. Beach side.
This is the view looking back towards the settlement.
On our way out we stopped and there we several Koala’s in trees, but this one was the closest for a photo but looking up into the bright sky is not good, but at least we can see Koala, sleeping, looks so uncomfortable. When we got home to the cabin decided to pop into Apollo Bay for Fish & Chips for tea, wondering along the beach front we saw a shop with specials, they had lovely big jackets on special for $20 bucks, yes we were cold so bought one each, still going well today, 2 years on. 🙂
