Mount Gambier to Port Campbell

The first stop we made was at the Bay of Islands, and then we stopped at The London Bridge. The London Bridge is not a bridge anymore though, in 1990 (I think) the actual bridge collapsed and left two people stranded on the rock that was left in the sea. Imagine just walking across while that happened! It is amazing how the ocean erodes all these rocks and wears them away over time until they just fall overâ€¦Unfortunately it rained for a lot of this stretch of the road, but in a way that made it more spectacular.
When we eventually stopped in Port Campbell we were again pleasantly surprised by the cabin. It was very spacious with a huge deck. That night we went to the local pub for some dinner and then back to the cabin. It was pretty cold that night, so we had jumpers and the heater on!
The next day it was on to Portarlington, a town on the Bellarine Peninsula opposite the Mornington Peninsula, where we would be staying with Peter and Denise Menger, friends of my mumâ€™s.
