Flagstaff Hill Maritime Village & Shipwrecked! Show Review

Flagstaff Hill Maritime Village is waaay too well-kept a secret in the city of Warrnambool! I vaguely remembered a Shipwreck tourist centre a long time ago, but it has since developed into a really fantastic tourist attraction – and until we’d hit Port Campbell, we’d never even heard it referred to! Luckily, a friendly local […]

Absolute beachfront luxury at Hearns Beach Villas

The Great Ocean Road had been long and winding during our Victorian road trip, but as we drew towards its end we were encouraged by locals to keep going – “Don’t miss Port Fairy!”  they said…so on we went, past Warrnambool and continued on down the coast for another 20 minutes to the gem of Port Fairy, and […]

Stay & Play in the Cape Otway Lightkeeper’s House!

We had the pleasure of staying in the Head Lightkeeper’s House accommodation at the Cape Otway Lightstation during our recent Victorian road trip. This would have to be one of the most unique accommodation experiences on the Great Ocean Road, if not the whole of Australia… Cape Otway is located just ten minutes off the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, […]

Road Trip! Day 12 – Ballarat – and the road home…

And so in the blink of an eye, our last holiday day dawned. We had been on the road for nearly two weeks, and although we’d been having a brilliant time, we had reached the point where we needed to go home to touch base – you know, wash clothes, visit the pets, read the mail…that […]

Going back in time at Sovereign Hill gold mining village, Ballarat

We had a free day today in Ballarat and were invited to explore the Sovereign Hill outdoor museum! Sovereign Hill is a really fun and educational (but don’t tell the kids that!) day out with the family.  We had seen the Sound and Light show there last night, and were keen to explore this historical tourist park in daylight. Rest-assured, you are […]

Road Trip! Day 10 – Port Fairy – Warrnambool – Ballarat

We bid good bye to our gorgeous waterfront villa and hit the road again today. It was at this point that we decided to leave the coast. We had reached the end of the Great Ocean road and its amazing sights officially at Warrnambool, and although Port Fairy was well worth the extra drive to […]

Road Trip! Day 9 – Port Fairy – Hearns Beach

We awoke at Hearns Beach to the sounds of crashing waves this morning, and with a simple turn of the head on the pillow, there they were in unobstructed view – the Southern Ocean in all its glory. We decided to spend just one more night in the Hearns Beachside Villas (you can read our review of the […]

Road Trip! Day 8 – Port Campbell – London Bridge – Flagstaff Hill – Port Fairy

Another day, another breathtaking destination! We left my mother to rest at the hotel this morning and set off back to Gibson Step (12 minutes drive) to walk down to the Twelve Apostles beach – the staircase only takes around a minute or two to go down and is quite safe and navigable for children – and […]
