Road Trip Part 8 – Lakes Entrance

From Bairnsdale there wasn’t much further to go to a small seaside resort called “Lakes Entrance.” In Australia place names are misleading and at times ridiculous… Lakes Entrance does actually fit though, as the inlet at this settlement is in fact where the entrance to the lakes from the Bass Strait (the bed of water Read more about Road Trip Part 8 – Lakes Entrance[…]

Road Trip Part 7 – Fuel Stop At Bairnsdale

A longer pleasant drive brought me to the city of Bairnsdale. Undoubtedly the largest settlement on this route I was taking. A blurred sign of the “Welcome to Bairnsdale” sign on the way in. It took me a while to drive through the carriageway through the city, which had many residential suburbs. A war memorial Read more about Road Trip Part 7 – Fuel Stop At Bairnsdale[…]

Road Trip Part 6 – 90 Mile Beach Start

At a lonely farming community called “Woodside”, we see the first sign dictating the “begin” of 90 Mile Beach. A famous long stretch of beach not to be missed on Victoria’s south coast. I found a lonely car park by Woodside beach. Name sharing itself with a discount store in my home town of Bangor Read more about Road Trip Part 6 – 90 Mile Beach Start[…]

Backpacking in Yarram Australia

Road Trip Part 5 – Yarram

I decided to stop at Yarram. There wasn’t anything special to see there, but it was a random spread out town in Gippsland, South Victoria.

Road Trip Part 4 – Tourist Information at Foster

    There was always the option to incorporate a trip to Wilson’s Prom into my road trip.    Wilson’s Prom is Wilson’s Promontory National Park, which has a lot of animals and also the marker of the southernmost point of mainland Australia.   Hardly anything exciting for me when I’d already past Wilson’s Prom Read more about Road Trip Part 4 – Tourist Information at Foster[…]

Jonny Blair a lifestyle of travel at Leongatha Church Australia

Road Trip Part 3 – Italy v New Zealand at Leongatha

  I left Frankston at dawn and headed east. I didn’t have any plans of where to stop and decided just to stop at anywhere that took my fancy.   I had a quick stop at Mosquito Hill, near Nyora.    This was just past the turn off for Philip Island, which was a backward Read more about Road Trip Part 3 – Italy v New Zealand at Leongatha[…]

Road Trip Part 22: “Adrian” Bogan Logan – Owen Millar Reunion *

I hadn’t seen Owen Millar for 3 years, well 2 and a half really. Since the SOENISC meeting in Weymouth in December 2007, I finally met up with my good old mate in June 2010. Both our lives had changed somewhat in the intervening years. Yet we both ended up in Australia somehow. Even in Read more about Road Trip Part 22: “Adrian” Bogan Logan – Owen Millar Reunion *[…]
