Road Trip: Melbourne at last!
The drive across country Victoria via Bairnsdale, Sale and Traralgon was slowed to a crawl by mile upon mile of roadworks, high winds and heavy rain. Approaching Melbourne, the weather cleared up and we trundled, brakes squeaking and clutch groaning, into St Kilda to meet a friend. There was an adventurous U-turn on Brighton Road, a double-dual carriageway with trams to boot!
After an all-too-brief chat over coffee and cake, it was time to meet the ferry. It was an easy drive around the waterfront to the Spirit of Tasmania terminal. We covered 660 miles (1’062km) in two and a half days and got there with half an hour to spare!
