Today was a relatively quiet day. The main activity consisted of driving the Burong Coastal Drive from Cape Paterson to Inverloch. It has been dubbed as the "mini-ocean road" so how could I not drive it! This portion is less than 20 km but passes numerous points of interest where one sees unique rock formations, sandy beaches, the odd rock pool, and of course lovely coastal scenery. The nice part for me was there was typically beach access so I would spend time at each location walking around and absorbing whatever was going on. All of the stop points were in fact part of the Burong Marine National park as of course the focus is on life by the water. Unfortunately, I did not see The Caves as it was high tide and I did not feel like scrambling around the slippery rocks. I did, however, see its cute beach. I stopped at Inverloch for the night prior to the last main destination of the trip - Wilsons Promontory National Park, affectionately know as "the Prom".
