Driving Miss Gracie

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.

The Redwoods
On the lookout for the hidden sphere, we wandered through hundreds of towering Californian Redwoods on the ferny banks of the Aire River....
Run Rabbit Run Cafe
If great coffee, vintage homewares or terrariums appeal to your tastes this is a great secret spot for a lunch or travel break....

Great Ocean Road’s version of Dark Mofo. Live music, live art featuring fire, water, sound and performance take over town....
