Into the Grampians

Posted by in Travel

When I planned my trip I thought it would be fun to go down the coast to the Great Ocean Road and then back up the coast all the way to Cairns and then back to Sydney.

Aside from one wrong turn onto the highway I made it out unscathed and close to relaxed.  As long as you get onto the right part of the highway the driving is pretty easy.
