So we survive the newly named ‘Death Road!’ all alot happier to see the ocean again, so we roll along, Graham taking the wheel first, a very good driver, then we hit soft sand and the wheels don’t do what you want them too when you hit soft sand, apparrently its also the same when you hit ice, something you all at home could identify with more! – Latergators

2. Sailing the Whitsundays

The scenery was also picturesque; the scenery began like a dream scene from a Christmas movie and ended like a clear postcard. – Sarahndebs

Melbourne as a whole and St Kilda in particular seems to have more cafes than anywhere else on earth and you could definitely have coffee in a different cafe every day for a year and still have more to try! – Willandluce
