One final stop before I drive to Sydney for the end of my #australiaroadtrip from Melbourne. This is Australia's Parliament House in the centre of the capital, Canberra.

Wow - what a cool experience! I went swimming with seals at Montague Island off the coast of Narooma and this one young pup decided to jump in the water. He was really playful - as you can see by how close he got to my GoPro!!

Be sure to check out +Island Charters Narooma - Narooma Bus Charter and Tours  to do it yourself! A great stop on the drive between Melbourne and Sydney.

Croajingalong National Park stretches for about 150 kilometres along the coast of Victoria all the way to the New South Wales border. It has some stunning coastline, with beaches like this!

Cruising around Gippsland Lakes, the largest inland water system in Australia.

The best way to see it all is on a boat. I would recommend a company called Riviera Nautic. You can rent a yacht for a multi day trip and sleep onboard or do a day cruise.

My new ride! (Well, for a couple of hours.)

A boat is the best way to see the Gippsland Lakes because they are the largest inland water system in Australia. You can cruise for the day and maybe spot the local dolphins, or perhaps even rent a yacht for a few days and go to the isolated beaches and national parks.

Don't forget Metung too ...... and of course Point Hicks and the sand dunes at Croajingalong, Point Hicks Lighthouse and Thurra River.

Have seen some stunning photography from Thurra River and the Sand Dunes area, you will get some amazing ones too.

All within the same area.

The footbridge crossing Tidal River at Wilson's Promontory. From the main camping area, you can get over the river here and then walk along the coast to some of the most impressive beaches.

The last stop on my #australiaroadtrip before I get to Sydney is Canberra. I love all the national buildings here in the capital - it's such a beautiful city!

This is the High Court. How many countries would have their most important court building surrounded by gum trees? :)

Not a bad camping site at all! Almost on the sand at the Beachcomber Holiday Park near Narooma. The sound of the waves lulling me to sleep in my +Maui Motorhomes campervan.

My Dad raced Dragons (http://www.intdragon.net/) down around there. Liked it so much that when he had a new cruising ketch built back in the UK, he named her Narooma Fond memories of that boat. :)

This fella wants to know if you're coming to come for an #australiaroadtrip soon! 🇦🇺😜

I took this shot at Gipsy Point Lakeside in Croajingalong National Park where I'm sure the kangaroos easily outnumber the humans. It's great to see them hop past your room in the late afternoon!!

Day 4 of my #australiaroadtrip from Melbourne to Sydney and I've arrived at Croajingalong National Park.

It's an enormous park that stretches 150km along the coast. Which means you can always find your own secluded spot to watch the sunset!

A really interesting place. It's possible to walk around and see everything up close. If you're ever passing through the area, make sure you take the time to stop and check it out.

This national park is well off the typical tourist trail and I'm not sure how many international visitors to Argentina come here. But it is well worth the effort. The landscapes are incredible and there's a lot of variety you can see in just the one tour. The moonscapes are beautiful but the red cliffs are also a highlight. You need to go with a tour once you're there but that's a good way to learn a bit more about everything.

Beautiful buildings - both the church and the monastery. They have both been well preserved and you get a good sense of both of them. The artefacts on display are very impressive too. I was a little surprised by some of the information presented, though... I felt like it was not the complete truth and was a fairly biased account of the Spanish invasion of the islands (rather pro-Catholic). Perhaps that's to be expected, though.

Spier Wine Farm is one of the oldest in the country, dating back to 1692. It also offers one of the largest selection of things to do and is spread out over a large space with several dining options, a farm to explore, and an area for the kids. Make sure you try the tasting that matches wines with chocolate!

This place is so interesting... and a little creepy. It's incredible to see the mummies and the way they have been preserved for almost 2000 years. Although the are down in pits, you get a really good view of them because they're so close. There are a few different pits and quite a few mummies (I'm convinced some of them were looking at me!) If you make the trip to Nazca to see the lines, try to get here as well. I did it as a tour from the town because I stayed overnight. You could do it on your own as well but it's probably better to have a guide give you the history of the place.

Hartenberg Wine Estate is a traditional winery that still uses its old cellar (an interesting sight!). It is particularly well known for its shiraz, which is definitely worth tasting. Meals are served in a wonderful dining room that evokes an old school atmosphere surrounded by wonderful landscapes.

Jordan Wine Estate is a family winery that does its tastings outside, under trees near the beautiful lake. The wines are fantastic and I challenge you to leave without getting a few bottles. There are also beautiful luxury suites here you can stay in, if you’re looking for accommodation out of town.
