The saying goes “All good things must come to an end” and so must our stay in Tasmania.
Last Saturday saw us take our final sightseeing tour, this time from Hobart north to Devonport via The Great Lakes where we boarded the Spirit of Tasmania for our trip home.
I’ll write about The Great Lakes at a later date, but I will say it was a fitting end to our 3 week stay in Tasmania and has left us longing to return in the future to explore the island some more.
We arrived back in mainland Australia on Monday at 6 a.m. and immediately set out for Apollo Bay, about halfway along the Great Ocean Road.
The Great Ocean Road is one of my bucket list entries and Apollo Bay seemed like a good place to spend a couple of nights and gather our thoughts before we start the second half of our holiday.
Unfortunately, the weather here has not been great. It’s been overcast, very, very windy and at times wet. This doesn’t detract from the charm Apollo Bay has with it’s various street art and scenic lookouts.
It’s also quite close to most other attractions like the 12 Apostles, Cape Otway and the surrounding national parks, so is a good spot to use as a base.
Over the next few weeks we going to spend some time in Melbourne and make our way up over the Snowy Mountains into Sydney where we going to spend Easter.
We don’t have anything planned for the next 3-1/2 weeks, apart from catching up with a few friends and family. I guess that’s the best thing to do in a way because that way we won’t get disappointed if we miss out on a planned event.
Anyway I’ll keep this post brief because the Internet connection is a little dodgy.
Catch you all next week.
