Left Melbourne this morning headed out to Torquay the start of the
Great Ocean Road.
Coffee stop in Torquay, to take in the sea views, Point Addis with the most spectacular views, only bad thing were the annoying flys! Its off the beaten track so surprised to see lots of cars, not necessarily there for the views but the surf!
A bus, a train and another bus gets us to Apollo Bay which is a town along the great ocean road. It's great to be able to travel the GOR without hiring a car as the bus goes right along the coast to Apollo Bay.

Anyways we are off to bed. All tuckered out from our travels. Going to take it easy tomorrow, maybe heading to the beach and a cabaret show in Melbourne.
