Even though we intended to drive along the famous Great Ocean Road, it was our first visit to this iconic area - and we felt like we were driving into the pages of a calendar!
The coastline was stunning. Paddocks and livestock on one side of the road and rugged coastline on the other. It was quite amazing!
We parked in one of the viewing bays and made the short walk to a lookout. We were standing on the edge of Australia!
There wasn't time to travel the full stretch of road but we really enjoyed what we did see. Fortunately we started our drive at the Warrnambool end, so saw several key formations - including the beautiful Grotto - before encountering the madness of the Twelve Apostles. There were so many people! We joined the throng and had a quick look, before heading back to the car and driving on to Port Campbell, where we stopped for a picnic afternoon tea.
