London Bridge … has fallen down! The collapse of London Bridge was only a matter of time. One evening in January 1990 the main arch of the London Bridge collapsed, breaking it away from the mainland. ¬†Fotunately noone was injured and the only drama was a couple of people who were marooned on the newly […]

Another feature of the Twelve Apostles National Park was this archway, lesser known between Lock Ard Gorge and London Bridge. It is marked on tour guides and maps just as The Arch and we were grateful to have some time here away from the crowds that flock to the more well known features. The Grotto […]

Just before you arrive at the infamous Twelve Apostles there is Gibsons Steps (heading west). These steps allow you to negotiate down the sheer limestone cliffs to the beach below.

Wilsons Promontory National Park has become our new base camp down by Tidal River. We are helping out at the outdoor cinema here which puts on showings of latest releases twice a week on its open air screen. Driving into Wilsons Promontory was breathtaking, the roads twist and turn through beautiful scenery with colourful birds […]

We were fortunate to find Tooradin, a little town on the map with not much in it save a petrol station and a couple of shops and cafes. According to our trusty, if not slightly out of date, Camps 4 guide and map there would be somewhere to have a quick shower and use the […]
