25 April 2014 – Apollo Bay to Warrnambool VIC

It was appropriate that we saw the sunrise on the 99th anniversary of ANZAC Day.  There was not a cloud in the sky, nor was there any wind.  It was as if we had placed an order for a perfect day.

We had no problems with the Nissan and departed just before 9:00am.  We had to stop just after the outskirts of Apollo Bay to attach the towing mirrors, an oversight on his behalf, and much to our disappointment, the in-dash unit was not working.  Failure of this unit is actually important to us as it gives us music via the Ipod, GPS navigation, radio, Bluetooth for the telephone plus access to our reversing and rear view cameras.  All we had was the rear view camera, it could have been worse.

There was very little traffic on the road and we made good time on the winding road.  Our first intended stop was at Gibson Steps but here was no space to park so we proceeded to our next intended stop, The Twelve Apostles.  We were able to park without problems.

We then visited The Arch, Loch Ard Gorge (“He” went down the steps to the beach), London Bridge, The Grotto and finally the Bay of Martyrs.  There were several lookouts we could not visit due to the restriction of towing a caravan and the inability to turn in the tight spaces.

Whilst the day was sunny with little cloud cover, the sea mist impacted slightly on our photography.

We arrived in Warrnambool just after 3:00pm and headed straight to the Big4 Discovery Holiday Park where we were given a small tight camping site.

We had a brief look around the town before settling into our evening meal and a late night into bed.
