Dinner plains to Marlay Point Foreshore Reserve (339km 4.16hrs)

1. DINNER PLAIN to TRINCULO SHIPWRECK (274km 3.32hrs) 773 Shoreline drive, golden beach

When we got back to the van everything in there was so cold. So glad we didn’t try vanning it in the snow.

The first rest stop was on Golden Beach where we found a cool Shipwreck. Well, the rusty skeleton of what was left. Loved the rich colours of rusting metal against the white sands and clear blue skies.

A series of gales blew the Trinculo off course near Wilsons Promontory around 1879, finally running aground along 90 Mile Beach. Fortunately, no lives were lost.

2. TRINCULO SHIPWRECK to MARLEY FORESHORE RESERVE  (65km, 1hr) 696 Marlay Point Rd Clydebank 

On the way to the next stop, we did find the below cute little farmhouse but I believe this has been demolished since. However, still wanted to include it to make the point that slow travel allows you to discover on the way.


The night stop at Marlay Point Foreshore Reserve was pretty special, with both sunset(soft Pinks and blue) and sunrise(Bright) colouring me happy. The whole of lake Wellington reflects the colourful sky. But at a crisp 2 degrees, even without the snow, it was not the warmest experience. FREE CAMP with toilets, BBQ, swim, tables, pets
