Lightning Ridge NSW to DAYBORO QLD(9hr)

Home was beckoning, and the kids were getting restless so we diverged from our plan to stay in Dalby and finished off with a marathon drive home to the rest of the family.


Below is an example of the details we go to for out road trips:

  • Cranbourn to Cape Otway Lighthouse (4hr258km) – $46.50 fam. entry (Otway lighthouse rd, Cape Otway) Lunch – Café/ Sandwiches
  • Cape Otway Lighthouse leave by 1:30pm to Gibson’s Steps & 12 Apostles (1hr25min71km?) – Access to beach (Just after Princetown road intersection with Great Ocean Road)
  • 12 Apostles To Warrnambool(1hr75km) – Flagstaff Hill Shipwrecked sound and lazar show 7:20pm departing from Flagstaff Hill Reception. booking number is: 124230. arrive ten minutes prior (89 Merri St) 03 55594600(Accommodation)All Seasons Warrnambool – Swimming pool, 03 55628555 (581 Raglan Parade)

Dinner – Sandwiches/All Seasons restaurant

Breakfast – included for 2 adults

We also take a game bag full of things to do, for the kids when the eyes start to glaze over. The trick is to not let them know what is in the bag before hand, last resort is the DVD player. Stop regularly and make sure every stop has something to see or do, this keeps everyone looking forward to the next surprise.

All inclusive cost for trip was between $1500 and $2000 (fuel, food, accommodation, entertainment)

Hope you enjoyed following our first road trip and join me again.
