Apollo Bay, Victoria.

The last night before embarking on The Spirit of Tasmania, to home the next day - leaving Melbourne on the September 15, arriving in Devonport, Tasmania on September 16, 2015.

Thank you all for following our 3 months travel last year through various terrains in Australia.
This year, 2016 we will be heading to Cairns on the East Coast of Australia taking 4 months holiday.

Photos to come of some areas in Tasmania in the next post.

Photos below are of the Caravan Park at Apollo Bay, Victoria.





The view from our caravan site below and along at Apollo Bay, Victoria.






Coming down the road from the Caravan Park to the Highway.


Well before we arrived in Melbourne we came across this house!  What a great view of the sea it would have.

    1. Be a warm house when the sun was out though.
      Be good if we could see their view.

  3. Regarding the last house...would hate packing in the groceries.

  4. Good proximity to the sea of the caravan, that's a big advantage to enjoy the sea.

    I like that last house, with large windows to the sea.

    1. Many a caravan park is by the sea in Australia. A good place to have them.

  6. You have made a brilliant record of your trip - perhaps you should have it printed out and made into a family record book for the future.

  8. Well done Margaret and "Shanks" ( well he did the driving!).
    A great travelogue and view of the Northern, Western and Southern sides of Australia - just shows the World what a large and diverse country we have the joy and privilege to live in.
    Apollo Bay Caravan Park looks "Spick and Span".
    That house???? Well I guess the owners are young, not a place for young kids, unless you like visiting hospitals with broken limbs,
    and certainly not for the elderly.
    Nah - I'd be giving it a miss by the proverbial "mile".
    Many thanks for all your good work.
    Cheers

    PS: Federation Cup World Play-Offs this weekend in Brisbane. C'm on "Dasha" and "Sam" and final day of the Sydney Racing Carnival. I will be again glued to the TV - ha ha.

    1. Thanks Colin.
      The driver did a great job with no mishaps or close shaves.
      Expect if young children attached to the house there they would be well 'taught' on how to behave. Wonder is there a 'lift'!
      Didn't get to watch the tennis as I had guests for lunch today.

    2. I should hope to God and sense that there is a lift in that rather large steel/cement pillar structure.

  9. I've enjoyed your roam around Australia and learnt quite a few things. While I have been there, I have no memory of Apollo Bay and it looks rather nice.

    1. I'm pleased you enjoyed as I did doing it.
      Apollo Bay is a small village on the Great Ocean Road, with holiday homes - a beach place like others.

  10. How I would love that house. Elderly or not.
    And Apollo Bay looks lovely too.

    1. I bet that house cost a fortune to build, but more today to do so.
      Always thought that house was on the other side of the road, but that's the sea :)

  11. Wow! That's a house? Isn't that something!

    1. Yes, that's a house been there for a long time.

    2. I bet it's a beautiful view..wish I could see it and I expect so do others.

  12. Beautiful scenery! Thank you for taking us along with you on your tour. Have a fantastic weekend!

  13. That's a very pretty caravan park. I remember when caravan parks were just caravans, not a cabin in sight and amenities were a grubby toilet block with a shower off to one side.
    I don't think I'd like to live in that house, I'd worry the pole might collapse.

    1. It is a great caravan park, it was really clean, the walls in the amenities block was being painted, the garden immaculate.
      Most caravan parks are excellent these days.
      A bit of a worry the house on the pole.
