Our recent trip to the Great Ocean Road and South Australia has given us plenty to see in terms of our coastlines and the ranges (mountains). The whole course lasted for thirteen days and twelve nights, essentially covering the following four regions of Victoria and South Australia, namely:

The Great Ocean Road,

Kangaroo Island,

Flinders Ranges, and

The Eyre Peninsula
