Default Port Campbell via the Otways

Ozav8r and I had a hastily planned weekend away to Port Campbell.

We departed Sunbury at 10 am Saturday for a leisurely but cool trip to our destination of Port Campbell

So far there was none of the promised rain... first stop just short of Geelong.



The Otways forests were beckoning, so we were in like Flynn for a gander.



I'd not been to the Otways forest walk before, so a mandatory stop was the order of the day.







Yeah I found out all about Vertigo up there...





It was refreshing to say the least as we huffed and puffed our way through the forest. At least my toes thawed out on the walk..

As much as I liked our little walk in the trees, time was getting on and we still had an hour or so before reaching Port Campbell



This was one sweet place, the accomodation was about 15 steps away from the restaurant and bar.



We grooved the evening away to a one man band with a good crowd of locals in the bar.



Next morning was very fresh, but I took a stroll down to the beach for some pics.









With the black clouds rolling in we high tailed it for Melbourne via the Great Ocean Road.



trip distance 690 k for me.

Winter riding is cool...
