Hi,
Yes we are here after about 1900 Klms.
Since our last email we have
Finished the Great Ocean Road seeing the London Bridge and other great views along the way.
Yep! We had our first puncture.
Stayed in a football pavilion in Warrnambool. They were already training for next year. They take football rather seriously down here. They felt sorry for us and opened up their showerss for us.
Stayed at Hopkins Falls for a night. It is one of the widest water falls in Australia.
Stayed on a dairy farm in Terrang where Wil Whitley spends his spare time doing up old machinery and restoring old wooden toilet sheds.
Spent hours just wandering and looking. He had Barbara in the shed helping with the milking. She soon found out it is not only milk that comes out of cows.
Did a 80klm day the next day into Colac.
We spent several hours out of Banockburn riding through beautiful green valleys on the way to Lara.
The whole area away from the coast is very dry and we really noticed the lack of stock and the farmers told us they were even having problems growing grain.
We cheated as from Lara and caught a train into Melbourne where we will be for a week or so before heading for the
Apple Island.
