Picked up our hire car from Hertz in Melbourne, meeting a couple we met on the Phillip Island tour who were about to start their GOR trip as well. Getting out of the city and onto the freeway wasn't as half the nightmare I thought it was going to be. Soon we were flying down the freeway and on our way. First stop major stop was at Lorne where we …
