The Honkers-Kiwi-Aussie Tour: Day 19 Melbourne,Victoria, Au

With the help of friendly Aussies, figured out how to use the extensive tram system and found our way to the very impressive Southern Cross Railway Station. Took Vlink train to Geelong ( pronounced jil-long) and were met by Col Hibberd, aka the Colonel.

Amazing day's drive through Torquay, Bells Beach and along the Great Ocean Road to the 12 Apostles. Stunning scenery and interesting conversations along the way. "The Twelve Apostles are a collection of natural limestone stacks standing just off shore in the Port Campbell National Park, on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia. Their proximity to one another has made the site a popular tourist attraction. Originally the site was called the Sow and Piglets. The name was changed in the 1950s to the more majestic "The Twelve Apostles" to lure more visitors even though there was only nine left." Source:

Excellent dinner at Sinan's Cafe Restaurant (649 Rathdowne Street Carlton, VIC) after free use of internet at local library 2 blocks from our accomodation. We got used to paying anything from $1 - $2 NZ for 15 minutes internet use.
