We saw lots of fields of canola as we whizzed past.
So after a quick overnight stop on the way, our first place to visit was Ballarat. After a quick detour here ..
We then headed off to Sovereign Hill...a recreation of a Gold Rush village. Great place to take the kids...historical, educational and fun!
There is an area to pan for gold, here's our haul...
Not quite enough to buy that private jet yet! *grin*
Then we headed off to see the beautiful scenery of the Great Ocean Rd.
Some environmental art...
Apollo Bay. We stayed at some self contained cabins there which were wonderful.
The Twelve Apostles. Unfortunately only 9(?) still exist. Huge amount of tourists were here at the same time as us...it was a case of "dodge the selfie stick"!
Bay of islands
Griffith Island Lighthouse, near Port Fairy.
And then we finished off at Halls Gap and did some of the walks in the Grampians National Park
If you are a bush walker it would be great to stay a week in Halls Gap alone, unfortunately we were only there for two nights and had to leave early the second day to head home.
