Great Ocean Road

On new years day we (Dani, Emma, Lara) rented a car for two days to do the great ocean road (GoR) trip to the 12  apostles.  This is a beautiful drive and even though the weather wasn’t on our side, the views and beaches were just as amazing. We set off about 9 and stopped at Torquay (great for surfing – home of billabong),  Anglesey and Lorn on the way up.  We arrived at the apostles about 1630 but didn’t take a closer look that day due to what seemed like a million tourists piling off busses.   That night we stayed in port campbell in a really nice hostel called the port campbell hostel (original).   

Next day we went for a couple of walks; the lock and gorge and the 12 apostles beach walk. These are both a must!  We also stopped at Geelong on the way back and had a little sleep on the beach.  Lots of places to swim here.  There is a great public lagoon to swim in here and great street art.
