We set off on our journey to the Great Ocean Road after breakfast. Daddy and I decided that we should use the Searoad Ferries instead of driving out hence we headed out for Mornington to Sorrento.
The drive out; there were hardly cars on the roads and Daddy loved it! Well, occasionally, there would be a car or two but for most parts of our drive, it was just us.
Traveling time on board was about 40 minutes.
The journey had began...
Selfie! Aunt Justina convinced me to get the selfie stick so that we could take family pictures. :)
Split Point Light house - we stopped for pictures along the way...
A little chat with the locals and we learned that we were just in time to catch some koalas.
This was the first time we ever saw these creatures up in the trees, perched precariously on the branches.
Another one of my favourite pictures. We wouldn't have been able to capture this had we not gone koala-hunting. Dead trees, and lots of them. They just lined the roads on both sides and for as long as the eyes could see. Being the only car on the road made it even more haunting. C said this was like the scary woods in the story books.
After this, we got back to Apollo Bay and for dinner as the shops close at 8. It had been a long drive for Daddy so we called it a night soon after.
8 hours later and feeling rested, we continued with our drive.
An amazing sight.
The famous Twelve Apostles.
and a pit stop for a quick lunch.
the taste of fresh fish was heavenly.
Loch Ard Gorge
Bay of Martyrs
Bay of Islands
Our final stop before we ended our Great Ocean Road drive.
