Point Perpendicular and Sapphire Coast.

As they say – ‘Best laid plans’…..
I’m not going to go into too much detail. Just a bullet point of events. Nevertheless, apart from one really foul day, I had a good time. But also needless to say…..I will be needing to head back. I have a few unticked boxes on my trip list.

PLANNED EASTER JAUNT

  • Overnight drive to Point Perpendicular
  • Cruisy camping at Currarong Holiday Park
  • 3 days climbing at the Point
  • Drive back to Melbourne

WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

  • Overnight drive to Point Perpendicular
  • Cruisy camping at Currarong Holiday Park
  • 1st day climbing at the Point. Fab!
  • Early morning wake up with Gastro bug along with all attached symptoms. In tent bed until 4.30 pm next day.
  • Overnight rain flooded campsite and tent. All bedding wet. All clothes packed wet. Only dry item – bathers!
  • Rained continuously all the next morning. Road into Point Perp closed for the rest of the week.
  • Cut losses and decide to leave early taking 2 days to drive back along the Sapphire Coast to Melbourne.
  • Lovely weather and drive. Fish and Chips on the Eden pier.
  • Arrive Melbourne

A few nice pics of the trip. Some pretty speccy coastline along the way.
