Time to get planning people! It's already February (as if you didn't already know) and time is getting away. If you are coming from a long distance, try getting together with a few others and travel as a group. Plan your trip with what is comfortable for you and your passengers and your kombi. To give you an idea - when we went to Mt Gambier, we travelled as a group and would do 150kms then stop for morning tea, do another 150kms, stop for lunch, another 150kms and stop for the night and dinner. This gave us enough time to get there without rushing and we would cover at least 450kms in a day. We had plenty of time though and took the long way down the coast and along the Great Ocean Road.
