300 metres turn right

The last three days of our Australia trip was spent driving along the Southern Ocean Road and the Great Ocean Road.  Lots of photo today.

Day 1: Adelaide to Mount Gambier
As we drove along we saw this amazing pink lake.  Pink due to carotene in the water!

We stopped off to see where the pelicans nest but there were no pelicans.

A very long walkway

A table made from rolling stock

The Blue Lake in Mount Gambier which turns out to be blue only for a very few days in November

Buildings in Mount Gambier

Day 2: Mount Gambier to Port Campbell
Before leaving Mount Gambier we climbed up to this tower.  Roger went to the top of the tower but I didn't have the energy.

The view from the top

We went down the easier way but looking back the way we had come it didn't look (or feel) much easier.

The sunken garden in the centre of Mount Gambier

Along the coast road

As we drove along the Great Ocean Road there were signs to each different coastal formation and the signs always said 300m turn right.

The Petrified Forest
Not trees but hollow tubes of limestone

The Bay of Islands

The Bay of Martyrs

The Grotto

London Bridge

The Arch

Overlooking Port Campbell, our stop for the night.

Day 3: Port Campbell to Melbourne Airport
Loch Ard Gorge

The 12 Apostles

We stopped for a late lunch and I couldn't resist taking photos of the toilets (as you do!

And as we drove towards Melbourne Airport we saw this sign.

And we were crossing!  From Melbourne to Singapore to London and a drive home.

That's all for our trip to Australia for 2018.
