The Great Ocean Road Adventure


behold. giant (photo) post ahead.

i think no melbourne trip will be complete if you dont go for this great trip along the coastal drives. departing from melbourne city, passed the cute, serene little villages along the way and stop for a little stroll along the pristine sandy beaches at every lookout. for photo enthusiasts, the majestic views along the way will definitely blow your shutter!!

we were greeted with this beautiful sunny day!

#1

whithered maple leaves right after the winter.

#2 this was taken from inside the coach hence the shadow of the windows T____T

a cute church

#3

~country road.... take me home...~

#4

Bells Beach - Home to World Surfing Championships

#5

breathtaking, isnt it?! wanna surf?! :p

#6

our coach of the day

and this is the ever friendly coach captain.

#7

meet Mr. David πŸ™‚ he is uber cool!!

#8 owh… dont forget the big entrace arch….

#9

very quaint houses up the hill

we stopped at a very cute peaceful village called Angelsea….

#10

#11

sun. sand. sea

#12

more sand... :p

then we reached Cape Patton Lookout.

#13 Cape Patton Lookout

one of the beautiful lookouts along the coastal

where you can see this stunning view….

#14

this one somehow reminds me of bali.... i dunno why....

#15

i could lie under those tree and read my book all day long.... any day...

and suddenly the cloud thickened and darkened T____T the weather was so unpredictable!!

#16 Apollo Bay.

and as we continued, the sun reappeared and showered the earth with its beautiful rays of light. i was a happy girl (with a big ass camera)!!

#17

and i thought i could only see this in travel magazines!! (taken from a moving coach *sigh*)

and FINALLY!!! hold. your. breath. NOW.

#18

The Twelve Apostles!!!

eeeeekk!!!! (ok, that’s just me! being sakai as ever T___T)

and i cannot resist to interframed :p who cares how weird i looked with that freshly cut fringe T___T

#19

reminder: do not cut your fringe before a holiday!!!! T____T disaster!!

fun fact: the spectacular Twelve Apostles are a formation of limestone rock stack that rises dramatically from the Southern Ocean. They are named as such just for tourism purposes because there are actually only nine stacks of them. you can wiki more for info :p

you can also opt for a helicopter flight over Twelve Apostles. i didnt go for that because i’ve been on a helicopter many times and for free *lansi* and because i didnt want to spend extra AU$76 for a 15-20mins for that.

#20 The Loch Ard Approach. be swept away by the romantic and tragic story of two survivors aboard The Loch Ard. This is where they were swept and hide at the gorge before help came.

The Loch Ard

#21 from a higher point of view.

#22

one of the gorge

meet The Razorback!!

#23

because it has sharp edges and bumps along its back caused by wind blown spray.

i love the following photo the most that day. simply because i did well with the backlit photo :p yeye!!

#24

my boss! :p

then we reached our final stop. a cute little village called Port Campbell.

#25

The London Bridge. what is it doing down under??!! >.<

yeah. a broken bridge. too bad. that’s the remnants of it after the arch collapsed into the sea in 1990.

and one last beach shot during sunset.

#26

port camble at sunset

#27
