Victoria Stories and Tips

A days drive down the Great South Road

Bells Beach, Victoria Photo, Victoria, Australia

Upon waking up one morning and during breakfast it was decided that we would head southwest for the day, along the Great Ocean Road, and see how far we could get and be back in time for tea. Greg said he would at least like to get as far as Bells Beach as he is a keen surfer.

So off we went, down through Geelong, where we didn't stop, to Torquay and Bells Beach where we got out of the car to stretch our legs and walk down to the beach viewing platform. Bells Beach and the rest of the coastline has high cliffs that have to climbed before you can get to the beaches so the platform provided a fantastic veiw of Bells Beach below and of course many photos were taken so Greg would remember the ocassion.

From Bells we ventured further around the coast stopping at the small towns of Anglesea and Lorne where we stopped and stocked up on supplies and had a cuppa while taking in the veiw at a lookout.

After our stop in Lorne we decided to turn tail and head back. On the return trip we stopped of at Split Point to have a look at the lighthouse and take in the fabulous view. There was also a great craft/art studio there where I went in to have a look and bought a small print.

Then it was back to Melbourne to get dinner and an early night as we plan to go to the markets the next day and then start our trip home.
