Today saw us start our journey into Victoria and toward the Great Ocean Road. As we crossed the border we encountered many more pine trees and a slower speed limit, only 100 Kilometres on this road. At first this road wasn’t very interesting, although we did find and electronics store with an appropriate replacement cord for Reagan’s DVD player and even better, the local Target store at Warrnambool(which is where we got the DVD player from and they couldn’t provide a replacement unit or part) even paid for the part, they didn’t stock it.

Just after Warrnambool we turned of the highway to start our scenic drive along The Great Ocean Road. After half an hour on this road we were wondering exactly why it was called the Ocean Road when all we had seen was cow paddock after cow paddock… then all of a sudden appeared the ocean and our first glimpse of this Great coastline.

I don’t think the photo’s we got really justify the area, but it is literally breath-taking. We stopped at 3 places each just as spectacular as the last, then it started to rain so we made our way to our motel, which was only about 10 minutes drive from this point. We still had more to see tomorrow as we began our next part of the trip along more of the Great Ocean Road. The room was very nice, quite roomy with a large veranda, just a shame that the cooler weather didn’t allow us to use it.

That night we headed to the local pub for a meal, which after a bit of a wait as we got there too early was quite nice. Then we went back to the room and warmed up, the weather had turned quite cold, for our standards anyway. We didn’t get a chance to do anything else, so the rest of the site seeing in the area would have to wait for tomorrow.
