Seeing as the weather is not the best, instead of sitting in the van all day, Phil, Carla, Cheryl & I decided to head to the Great Ocean Rd and have a look at the 12 Apostles.
We headed from Winchelsea to Colac, Lavers Hill, then Port Campbell National Park, Port Campbell, Scotts Creek, Colac and back to Winchelsea, at total of about 300K for the day. (see map below)

Di, the owner, is such a lovely lady. Upon arriving she left a note for us explaining she had gone to lunch and was sorry not to be able to greet us. We arrived in our cottage (Canopy) and there were homemade cookies and bird seed awaiting us. We wasted no time in feeding the local parrots, in no time we had Crimson Rosellas, King Parrots and Common Bronzewings feeding from the feeder, much to the delight of our friends from the UK who we took there. There are wonderful bushwalks around the property, and also into the Otways National Park which adjoins the property. My partner and I are already planning our next trip this Winter. Thanks Di! Trish (& UK friends)
