Day 10: Shipwreck Coast and Warnambool

The whole coastline around here is spectacular, as we check out Loch Ard Gorge and London Bridge before stopping in Port Campbell for gas. The bloke who runs the gas station also runs the local dive boat- unfortunately at this time of year I'm the only one who wants to go diving. I almost cry- some of the spots long this coast myst be as spectacular under the surface as they are above it.

 We head on to Warnambool and check out the "whale nursery". It mustn't be a school day as the whales aren't in attendance. So we drive on to Port Fairy, which is another lovely spot, with loads of old buildings and a picturesque harbour which was once apparently one of Australia's busiest- kinda hard to believe now.

We camp at the mouth of the Fitzroy River a little further down the road- a good free campsite at last! The land is really flattening out here and the sunset is spectacular.
