Day 6 – Halls gap to Apollo Bay via Dunkeld, Hamilton, Port Fairy and Warrnambool

The skies were dark and threatening as we set off this morning to track South along the eastern side of the Grampians after having crossed from the western side through Halls Gap yesterday. The road was dry and the riding coolish but comfortable. The rain stayed away and the weather gradually cleared as we fueled up at Hamilton and headed to Port Fairy through very pretty dairy country. We enjoyed a coffee stop at Port Fairy then headed to Warrnambool. We passed through more dairy country before stopping to marvel at the Bay of Islands, the first of our Great Ocean Road sights.

Fish and Chips

After enjoying a late fish and chip lunch at Port Campbell we tackled the last 100k or so along the coast to our overnight stop at Apollo Bay. All up a very pleasant 383 Kms of riding for the day.

Bye for now
