Today’s objective was to drive from Warrnambool to Wangaratta, looping through the middle of Victoria and visiting Ballarat and Bendigo.
After two weeks holidaying in Tasmania with my family, I was headed for home — more than 2,500 kilometres away! My family flew home from Hobart, and I was going to take the long route home to Brisbane.
I had driven the western roads of Tasmania from Hobart to Devonport, via Strahan, two days ago. I had then spent a sleepless night crossing Bass Strait on the Spirit of Tasmania, followed by a day exploring the Great Ocean Road, spending the night at Warrnambool.
