Would anyone have any fav's in this area? Heading out of the goldfields tomorrow, and down along the Great Ocean rd for the next few days for some sightseeing.
We finally caught up with Vivien & Ray, EO Vic members and had a great chat over lunch a few days back. Weather has finally cooled down here now, thank god! Thanks again Laurie & Jodie

Uncle,
Wye or Kennet River are picturesque places with friendly operators and you are far from the crowd. Just past Lorne.

Cheers

I stayed at the Torquay Foreshore CP, it was OK. Its on the beach and close to town.

The options certainly improve as you move down the Road.

You reallly do need to spend more than a few days to make the most of this beautiful part of the world.

G'day Uncle,

We're heading off from Port Pirie Saturday morning for the same area.

When do you think you will pass by this way?

Sorry Unc, I misunderstood you, I thought you were at the WA goldfields., and heading east.

How did you find the Lorne CP? or did you camp out somewhere.

We are heading off to the Vic High Country Saturday, otherwise you would have been welcome to call in for a coffee when you pass by our town.

Geoff.

Thanks for the offer Geoff, might catch up on our way home though, later in the year. We stayed at Lorne foreshore park. Quite nice, grassy sites and some shaded too, but not that we need shade now with the chilly temps! We stayed in the park area behind the shops, less people and better sites I think.Anyway safe travels mate take care. Laurie

Hi again Geoff, we stayed a nite at Aire River west campgrounds, very nice right beside the river, grassy and some CT friendly sites. Saw Cumberland River Campsite on the way past there the day before, and it also looks very nice. Wye river Van park also looked like a nice spot for next time. Cheers mate

Oop's, sorry forgot to give you the site number from the camp snaps book no 4. Site677 Aire River west, the pic in the snaps book does'nt do the grounds any justice, some of the sites were very nice and sheltered from the howling southerlies. minimal people there, wish we'd have stayed another nite now!! unc

Did ypu pass through Warrnambool along the highway about lunchtime Friday? Heather was bedazzled by a vehicle loaded to the gunwales with EO stickers everwhere covering embarassing windows , white paint, the pole tube and the green CT.

Heather was in 'the other car' and had a mini copy of an EO sticker on the rear window.

G'day,
We are located in the Otway Rangers (Gellibrand). A great camp site (free and you can have a fire) is at Ayre River which is about 25ks South of Lavers Hill on the Great Ocean Road.
There are two seperate camp sites. 1 is for fires and the other no fires.
The river runs between the two sites (connect via a wooden bridge = 5ton load limit).
Good fishing in the river (especially if you have a boat). But you can also venture approx 1.5ks to the beach.
Worth a visit.

Cheers,
Brad
