AUS ‘09 – DAY 10 – GREAT OCEAN ROAD

Great Ocean Road

A second day on the Great Ocean Road starting with breakfast overlooking Apollo Bay. The panoramic picture above was taken from our hotel balcony. We then drove on to the twelve apostles which are eight (previously nine) rock formations just offshore. Just a short drive on from the apostles was the Loch Ard Gorge which reminded me very much of the setting of the book The Beach. Both were, just like yesterday, fabulous.

Our final stop was to the Triple Falls which was back inland and a change from the ocean views of the rest of the trip. It’s amazing how small an amount of water can create such spectacular waterfalls.

Then the dull drive back to Melbourne.
