Down the coast from Melbourne is one of the most beautiful seaside roads in the world.
Curves, ocean surf, and rocks greet a driver at every turn. Luckily I had a very experienced local driver. Signs remind tourists to stay to the left.
It was wonderful to stop, watch and listen to the surf pounding on the rocks.
But my favorite stop was Mait’s rest. A rainforest on a peninsula sticking out into Bass Strait.
It was a magical place, full of lush green smells. Moisture dripped from every leaf even through the surrounding land along the ocean road had been quite dry.
Finally we arrived at our stop for the night, a lovely apartment in Warrnambool.
