Limestone Coast

After crossing the border, we continued through Mt Gambier, Tantanoola, Beachport, Kingston SE and Meningie – a region known as the Limestone Coast

Great Ocean Road

We travelled the Great Ocean Road in April 2014, one of the world’s most scenic drives! The unforgettable journey stretched over 240 km along the south eastern coast, and took us 3 days.

Melbourne

We spent a couple of rainy days sightseeing in the state capital of Melbourne

Ramsay Street!

We paid a visit to Pin Oak court in the Melbourne suburb of Vermont South, excited to be seeing the set of Ramsay Street where Neighbours is filmed!

Ninety Mile Beach

We reached the south eastern coastline in April 2014, and passed Ninety Mile Beach, a stretch of golden sand that runs for over 150km. We couldn’t see a single other person for miles!
