Phillip Island – Melbourne – Queenscliff – Sorrento – Melbourne

From Philip Island I drove straight to Melbourne. I have to sell old “Frog” and find him a new partner. I unloaded all the stuff from the car, made some pictures and advertized old “Frog”. The very next day I had 10 calls from the persons anxious to buy old “Frog”.  I made a deal with German backpacker, who promised to buy my vehicle after Monday. Until then I try to go to the places near Melbourne, that I haven´t visited since.

With local friends I took a trip to Geelong – Queenscliff – Sorento. In Geelongis I strolled on Tallinn Street! It is a short and quiet street in the Bell Park. There I first saw a birch in Australia.

The road took me on to Queenscliff, where you can take the pontoon to Sorento. The channel between Queenscliff and Sorento handles all the sea traffic, which connects Melbourne with the ocean. Melbourne is protected from the open sea by Port Phillip Bay. They say that is why you can´t predict Melbourne´s weather well and your prognosis can change many times per day.

At first we planned to go back through Dandenong Mountains, but the day turned in to the night. One does not want to take an adventure in the dark and we turned back to Melbourne. We got back late in the evening.


I asked are there any festivities regarding Estonian Independence Day, but nothing special isn´t going on. In Sidney they organize a boat trip to Shark Island. We made a dinner ourselves. In eastern side of Melbourne there is a Russian shop where we bought black bread. We ate pork dish this evening.

By the way I shot some pictures from „Frog“ and special corner for him on our website!
