Driving Miss Gracie

Great Ocean Road and Forrest, Victoria
Meet Gracie. Our green, freedom machine perfect for a Great Ocean Road AdVANture. The newest member of the girl-gang on a road trip to the Winter Wild Festival – famous for beachside bonfires and Dark Mofo-esqe performance art.

Our Insta loved taking vanlife for a spin as much as we did. It was impossible to take a bad shot of this 1970’s Westfalia Kombi…at the Great Ocean Road sign, Redwood Forest in the Great Otways National Park, watching whales migrating past the Marengo Reefs National Park and fairy-lit up for ocean front nightcaps before the zzz’s hit.
