Great Ocean Road pt 2

January 15, 2015

Day two of our Great Ocean Road trip saw us saying goodbye to our lovely Torquay hostel and leaving early in the morning to drive all the way to Warrnambool. We stopped a lot along the way, got stuck in some rainstorms, tromped through the forest looking for (and finding) koalas high up in the trees and  stopped at almost every single lookout along the way (prompting someone to finally say “no more lookouts, please” and causing it to become a joke among us), stopped at the famous 12 Apostles, along with some other great stops (The Arch, The London Bridge, The Grotto). The rain did cause us to think the day had been somewhat ruined, but it ended up turning out ok. It mostly rained when we were driving, so that was good.

The Great Ocean Road is fabulous. Definitely a must if you are in Victoria, and certainly something you should attempt to do if you visit Australia at all.

*Warning* – there are a LOT of pictures in this post. But it was all just too beautiful I couldn’t decide which not to post.
