Lists 26 Showers

Patronise the roadhouse if using a free facility. There are often more showers available for men than ladies (eg three to one) as they are catering principally for truck drivers. Some Visitor Information Centres have hot showers available. We have found in the past when travelling to a town where no showers are available at all, approaching a local Hotel and offering to pay for a shower has been met with a positive response, however these days most small towns have a caravan park with showers, be it private, Shire run, or in conjunction with a Hotel. Many caravan parks allow use of showers by non guests for a fee usually between $2 and $5.50 and some Shire caravan parks may offer the service free.

Town swimming pools or Recreation Centres are another option, and usually have hot showers in the change rooms. Public showers can also be found using the Public Toilet Map - Hot showers at Visitor Centre, $4 per shower. LINC Tasmania Online - Computers + internet.

Driving the Great Ocean Road » Pommie Travels. I’ve driven the Great Ocean Road twice, and it’s still one of my favourite parts of Australia.

Driving the Great Ocean Road » Pommie Travels

The first time I hired a van in Melbourne and drove to Port Campbell and back in just under three days. The second time I was taking part in the World Nomads Vantastic Road Trip, so I drove from Melbourne all the way across the border into South Australia. If you have a license and you can rent a car then I suggest you drive instead of taking a tour, because that’s the whole point of the Great Ocean Road- sitting behind the wheel and driving around the windy coastal road. At each turn you find a new lookout, a better wave and a new beach. The south coast just doesn’t look anything like the East Coast of Australia. The “Great Ocean Road” doesn’t deserve such a flat adjective as ‘great’. The route: Highlights: Torquay- This is the first major stop on the way to the Great Ocean Road.
