Great Ocean Road (July 2006)

Unfortunately our caravan won’t be ready to collect from Dave Benson Caravans until next weekend (22 July 2006).

We were hoping to “break” it in by taking an extended long weekend trip to Warrnambool and then along the Great Ocean Road on to Melbourne. We had already arranged for a few days Annual Leave and had options to stay in motels or in the caravan.

So instead of being in our caravan, we will be staying in motels.
