Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Great Ocean Road

I am now in Melbourne where the weather is similar to Spring time at home. It is certainly a lot cooler than in the Northern Territories but there is a welcome freshness in the air. Today I took  a coach trip along the Great Ocean Road. It was a round journey of 600km but definitely worth a visit as the scenery is spectacular.

Our first stop was at Torquay

 We were caught in some traffic due to road works and there in the trees was a koala!

The sun just began tomake an appearance as it was time to move on.



  1. Wonderfully misty and dramatic - great shots!

  2. Beautiful! Now there's a road I'd love to travel! And what luck at spotting that koala!!! :o)

  3. After a quick look around your page... where's 'home'?
    Wonderful what you are doing, great photos and adventures.

  4. You are going very fast through Australia, from north to south, I liked the Great Ocean Road very much.

  5. A beautiful place I would love to visit again. Wishing you a Happy Friday and lovely weekend!

  6. Hi there - what a nice place - I think I should visit!

    I think your tree in Alice is a Jacaranda - although I have not idea why your guide called them what he (she?) did.

    Enjoy the rest of your trip!


  7. One of the nicest drives in Australia. Pity about the weather.
