The Spud Box, Warrnambool

Most evenings on the Princess Highway you can see a group of people standing in front of a food van in the carpark of a closed tyre outlet. This is The Spud Box and I will probably be one of the people standing in line. The Spud Box is open Wednesday to Sunday evening and one of the only spud outlets around.
It can be quite hard to find a hot baked potato as very few outlets are available so when you do find one of this quality it makes the queuing worth your while. The difference I find here is that the potato is crushed at the top rather than just sliced open. Watching Jeremy create the spuds at a very impressive speed adds to the culinary experience.
A large selection of spuds are available in two different sizes (I always go for the large). Choose from meat lovers to vegetarian and many others in between as well as several sauces and salts. The service is always friendly and fast although you may have to queue for some time so if it’s raining or cold be prepared.

So you are thinking of visiting Queenscliff

Queenscliff, a seaside resort on the Bellarine Peninsula is a very popular beachside destination steeped in a rich heritage characterised by elegant hotels, guesthouses, galleries, restaurants, cafes, a fine golf course, ferries and wide streets with terraced houses. It has both bay and surf beaches.

It still has 19th-century stone and timber fisherman’s cottages, and a working wharf, boat builders and plenty for the anglers.

It is situated around 30 kms from Geelong just within the entrance tp Port Phillip Bay.

Fort Queenscliff which was built on Shortlands Bluff, overlooking the commercial shipping lanes for Melbourne and Geelong. This was one of my favorite destinations as a child and still should not be missed.

In recent years Queenscliff updated it ferry service to large vehicle carrying vessels so it can be accessed via Geelong or Sorrento.

A fisherman’s paradise and one of the most relaxing seaside destinations in Victoria.

So you are thinking of visiting Ocean Grove

Located on the Bellarine Peninsula around 25 kms from Geelong or 100 kms from Melbourne Ocean Grove is the perfect surf, sun and fun destination. It is separated from its twin town of Barwon Heads by the Barwon River estuary – a short drive across the bridge. This is a large town of almost 10,000 residents which swells in numbers during the summer months.

Renowned as a surf destination, Ocean Grove will not disappoint with ocean swells regularly giving great surfing opportunities. The beach is patrolled during the swimming season and the lifesavers club has a cafe offering spectacular views of the ocean while you eat.

There are plenty of restaurants and cafes, a supermarket, adventure park for the kids, and lots of beach for romantic evening strolls.
