Melbourne -Great Ocean Road - Grampians

View Backpacking 2006 on jefranklin's travel map.

Just a quick update today as I have not been doing any daily entries on my Pocket PC and I only have 7 minutes left!
The last week was spent flying from Hobart to Melbourne, and overnighting in a hostel there. We did catch up with Kristina, whom is a Sydney friend who moved to Melbourne about a year ago. It was good to see her after such a long time.
We then drove over the space of three days along the Great Ocean Road, stopping off for 2 days of it in the Apollo Bay. It was from here that we did a spot of sea fishing, and contrary to normal experiences, actually caught some fish. Between us, we caught 5 Flat heads, a couple of baby sharks and a Barracuda. It was actually me the Barracuda, and it put a decent struggle. Almost felt obliged to let him go... (almost).
After Apollo Bay we overnighted in Port Cambell, having stopped off enroute to view the 12 Apostles. Awesome to look at, and a photo or my words does not do them justice.
Finally, we drove to the Grampians and are currently staying in the YHA here. (I like YHA internet kiosks :). Unfortunately, they have just experienced a horrendous bush fire, but fortunately where we are staying (Halls Gap) got away pretty unscathed.
Got to go!!!
