Lighthouses near Geelong

Three lighthouses I have noticed are in Queenscliff and Point Lonsdale because the Rip has been a dangerous place for shipping over two centuries with many ships wrecked in the area. The Rip is where the Bellarine Peninsular is almost joined to the Mornington Peninsular.

A week ago I went on the Queenscliff ferry across the bay to visit elderly aunts in Mt Eliza. This saves a long trip by road, but the ferry cost with vehicle was $58 each way with three passengers. A 45 minute trip across and usually there are dolphins following the ferry. From Sorrento where the ferry docked we drove through Rye, Rosebud, Dromana (haunts of my childhood summer holidays with Dad, Mum, four boys, me, and pet dog - from the Mallee sand to the beaches,) to Mt Eliza where the Melbourne suburbs reach on the eastern side.
