The Great Ocean Road! Woohoo! Driving along epic beaches and cliffs for two days and spotting a lot of wildlife!
Sure, it was a bit rainy when we started…But those clouds headed towards Melbourne and flooded the city (they really did, we were lucky we missed that). So our Ocean Road was pretty sunny :)And cliffy And a bit gloomyBut once we reached the small town of Lorne, the weather really improved and we did a short hike to a waterfall. The Great Ocean Road also has a lot of jungles and forests. We drove further along the road and there, we spotted our first koala :DHooray! We spent the night at Apollo Bay. The next day was really sunny, so we left early and enjoyed a full day of jungles and beaches!From there we drove to the most southern point of Australia with its oldest working lighthouse: Cape Otway.The Road towards the lighthouse was filled with eucalyptus trees and koalas :) After our stop at the lighthouse we drove to the most famous spot along the Great Ocean Road: The 12 Apostles (well no, only 7-ish left!)But man they are cool!! And the beaches around them are amazing.Beautiful yellow cliffs! We visited the nearby “Loch Ard Gorge”, named after the 19th century English ship that was shipwrecked there with only 2 survivors.The whole coastline near the 12 apostles is absolutely gorgeous. We really enjoyed the Great Ocean Road, it had so much variety with beautiful beaches, jungles and lovely towns. It was a very relaxing trip!
Next up is our 2 day trip to “Kangaroo Island” !
