A Little T&C

The adventures of Tristan and Candice

  • Day 9: Ballarat, VIC to Melbourne, VIC

    Back to Melbourne. The drive was pretty good apart from deciding to skip the toll road which meant that we were in a traffic jam for 10-20 minutes to only get back on the same road we were originally on. But I guess we saved a couple of dollars! Dropping off the campervan was really […]

  • Day 8: Halls Gap, VIC to Ballarat, VIC

    It was a fairly short drive to Ballarat. We went past a few nice towns that would have been good to stop at and check out, but I felt a bit lazy and just did slow drives down the main streets. Originally we were thinking of driving to the Yarra Valley as our last stop, but […]

  • Day 7: Mt Gambier, SA to Halls Gap, VIC

    We started the day doing another drive around the blue lake (our caravan park was right next door). Since it is winter it isn’t super blue but blue enough to notice the difference between it and the other lake next to it. We made our way back to Victoria and headed inland. We stopped at […]

  • Day 6: Port Fairy, VIC to Mt. Gambier, SA

    We got to an early start today, not bothering about filling the car with water or emptying the grey water as we had a long drive to Mt Gambier and also needed to back track a bit to go see Tower Hill which is an extinct volcano that has lots of animals inside. Kind of […]

Originally we were thinking of driving to the Yarra Valley as our last stop, but after figuring out how long it would take us thought […]

Since it is winter it isn’t super blue but blue enough to notice the difference between it and the other lake next to it. We made our way back to Victoria and headed inland. We stopped at some waterfalls. We then got to Halls Gap, we hadn’t […]

Kind of like Ngorongoro Crater which we saw in Tanzania, although on […]

Candice brought fancy maple syrup from home and we got some shake and pour pancake stuff and so had a pancake feast for breakfast. Today we went off the Great Ocean road for a short tour up to Timboon for a bit of a ‘foodie’ tour. Our first stop was the chocolate shop, they had a bowl of ‘tester’ chocolates which Candice kept on ‘testing’ […]

We woke up a little bit later today and had a slow start to the day. Our first stop was the Cape Otway lighthouse, along the way we were told that we should see some koalas in the tree. We couldn’t spot any until we saw a couple of cars pulled over, once we were stopped all of a sudden we realised there were koalas […]

Even though we had the heater going throughout the night it was still a bit chilly in the camper van. Our first stop today was at Bells Beach. It was nice but not that exciting. Not sure what I was expecting, maybe because the surf was so flat it seemed a bit boring. Then to Airleys Inlet to see the round-the-twist lighthouse. In Lorne we […]

The sleep in the camper van was really pleasant even though it was freezing outside. The heater works perfectly! We got back on the road at 10am (as thats when we needed to ‘check-out’) and explored a bit more of the island. We stopped just off the island at San Remo for some much needed fish and chips and at midday is their daily ‘feed […]

We woke up at around 5am to get our flights down to melbourne. The Virgin airplane we had was very nice and everything seemed new. We then had a short taxi ride to where we needed to pick up our camper van.   It looks quite nice, it has a microwave, fridge, toilet, shower, reversing camera and even a TV! After a few shaky starts […]

So we are leaving in a few days to go on our GOR (Great Ocean Road) adventure. The bird has been taken to Candice’s parents… as well as our Japanese student! Now we need to figure out what we need to pack… We are flying down to Melbourne on the Friday morning and picking up the campervan from Cheapa Campa straight away, this is the […]
