Melbourne and Sydney are the two largest and well-known cities in Australia, we decided to take the 12 hour drive and see the space between the two. We stayed in Sorrento where the first Europeans to come to Victoria settled and had the most delicious breakfast near the sea, we stayed in Eden where the restaurants close by 8:30pm but in this sleepy town you can see every star in the sky so we settled for a take away pizza, and sat in the car by the beach. Believe it or not Eden was actually one of the larger towns we stopped in. On some stretches of the road we would be driving for an hour and see only a couple of other cars. We saw more greenery on this trip than I have ever seen in England, another misconception I had of Australia was how many fields I would see. But I wasn't mistaken about the Kangaroo situation, we spotted a couple along the edge of the motorway as the sun started to set and made sure we didn't drive after dark as this is when the Kangaroo's come out and roam, and if you hit a Roo your insurance doesn't cover it! The places between Sydney and Melbourne are often overlooked by travellers who fly between the two but sometimes it's the journey and not the destination thats important.
