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!

Canberra

At the beginning of April 2014, we spent a day exploring the nation’s capital

South Coast

Near the start of April, we madeĀ our way towards South Coast NSW. From Wollongong we stopped in Jervis Bay, Batemans Bay, Merimbula & Eden – before crossing the border into Victoria.

Blue Mountains

We spent a day exploring the beautiful and scenic Blue Mountains National Park

The Scenic Rim

We headed south east towards our next destination, stopping at Boonah, Lake Moogerah and Warwick along the way.

Palm Beach (Summer Bay)

We took the opportunity to visit Palm Beach, in the northern suburbs of Sydney – otherwise known as ‘Summer Bay’, used in the filming of popular Aussie soap opera, Home & Away

East Coast Road Trip

Part 2

By mid March 2014, we crossed the border back into New South Wales, after spending a few months in Queensland, and began to head back down the east coast again – ready for our next big road trip!
