Great Ocean Road. Tips on sites etc please... newby here..

Postby Paul P » Sat Aug 25, 2012 12:00 am

Hey,

My wife and I are taking our tent on a plane and flying over to Melbourne with our two boys and will be taking the drive up to Adelaide via the Grat Ocean Road. Our two boys are 9 and 6 and we will be camping all the way up. We are going to take around a week doing this trip so if youi can offer any advice on things we hae to see or places that would be good to stay that would be great. We are new to Australia having moved here just 7 weeks ago so we would like to see some cool stuff. When we get to Adelaide we will be staying there for a week too camping on my Aunts place in Gawler. :hello:

Any tips would be very greatly appreciated,

Thanks in advance,

Paul

It is many years since I did the GOR Paul so any info I have would be way out of date. Hopefully someone will be along soon who can offer you some advice.

I have moved you post to the General Chit Chat section where it will get more exposure.

Know this is probably not politically correct but there is quite a good trip report on another forum definately worth a read

You are right, not quite the correct move Morgo. Seeing as it is your site, why not copy and paste the report here for us please.

I am sure there are many who would love to read it.
