Coming over the top of the Otway Ranges from Forest
The view from Beacon Lookout over Apollo Bay is a must stop before making the final descent to the Great Ocean Road
I’ve written about this iconic roadway.
But on a windy day the sea around the monoliths at Port Campbell is foaming white.
Crossing the border into South Australia, the pretty fishing town of Beachport provided a pleasant stop
The Coorong is for me one of the most beautiful and mystical parts of Australia
A string of saline lakes separated from the Southern Ocean by huge sand dunes.
At the southern end the lakes are dry salt pans which gather water as one travels north toward the mouth of the Murray River
Crossing the Murray River near where it forms its estuary and the Coorong connects back to the Southern Ocean
At Cape Jervis which overlooks Kangaroo Island it was time to turn in land
And to night the Flinders Ranges are within striking distance and the vista has turned from sea blue to straw yellow
And the buildings in the small towns are of hard stones
And the sunset starting to gain a desert hue
Tomorrow its further inland to the Flinders Ranges!
