... steak on the bbq and all too soon this stop is over and we're back on the road. We are heading for Torquay and then Anglesey to stay over for 2 nights but the camp sites are mega pricey. We drive until Lorne where it's slightly more reasonable. The great ocean road is a spectacular landscape, the road weaving in and out of coves as sheer hills meet the turquoise ocean.
