The Great Ocean Road

The Great Ocean Road is one of the most breathtaking scenic drives anybody could wish to take. A coastal route stretching almost 250k from Torquay too Warrnambool. It weaves and curls along the Victoria coast through mesmerizing surf beaches and dense rainforest.
Driving along this road is a thrill; one of the best roads to drive on in the world! You get drawn into the slow pace of the world around you and the road slips away through the immense diverse scenery surrounding you

Many know the Great Ocean Road for revealing the Twelve Apostles. This sight used to be 12 pillars of rock protruding from the sea and sand of the coast. However due to erosion the sight today is less appealing than what it once would have been. More than a few of the “Apostles” have collapsed leaving some still standing. Yet even these don’t seem to have the legs for many more years to come looking very unstable. Yet even this slight criticism can not take away the beauty of the nature here. But the Great Ocean Road has many more hidden surprises that one should not miss the opportunity to see: all of which I feel are better than the Twelve Apostles.

Loch Ard Gorge:- A beautiful little gem on the Great Ocean Road: a small beach surrounded by towering rock on all sides apart from the small gateway to the sea. With the coastline between Cape Otway and Port Fairy being know as the “Shipwreck Coast” ships navigation is somewhat treacherous in these areas.  More than 80 ships did not see land again in the space of 40 years. Loch Ard George famously named after one of these shipwrecks.

Bay of Islands:- A bay with numerous islands rising from out of the sea.

Bay of Islands!!! 
The Grotto:- A beautiful little spot were weather/ sea erosion has created this small grotto with unbelievable views. Be cheeky and hop over the walls to get an unbelievable view of inside the grotto.

London Bridge & The Arch:- Sea erosion have created these spectacular views.
