Practice Day

26th February
Today we had a practice for Tassie roads. We left Warrnambool to take The Great Ocean Road. This goes south east to Port Campbell and the stunning cliffs. First stop was the Bay of Isles. Drove into the car park for the Twelve Apostles but it appeared overly commercialized so we continued on to Gibsons Steps. The air was a pleasant and the sea rolling in with the tops of the waves giving off spray.

The road onto Apollo Bay is quite twisty which test your skill getting along it. Most of this section is through bush. We lunched at Appollo Bay then on to Geelong. The road to Geelong follows the coast going in and out and up and down.
It took a little effort to find a motel near Geelong but we manage to find one near the oil refinery at Corio.
