Loch Ard Gorge Shipwreck Coast

In perfect Spring riding conditions I took a solo run through the Otway Ranges to the Loch Ard Gorge, named after a famous ship the Loch Ard that was wrecked here in 1878. Fifty -two drowned, with just two survivors who were washed up in the gorge. It is just a few kilometers past the 12 Apostles on what is known as the Shipwreck Coast.

The weather was magic, about 20C and not a puff of wind. I hope its as good as this for the Phillip Island MotoGP next weekend.

Unfortunately I had to buy fuel at the Laver's Hill store - I don't recommend it !
