Great ocean road and the 12 apostles

Great ocean road is known for its scenic drive along the coastal reef. It was truly a life changing experience for all of us. We started off a little bit late than our scheduled time, but still managed to go Pie Face to grab some breakfasts.

Stopped for a while at the Great ocean road entrance, because we are tourists, we should take picture there, right ? well I like to be called traveller instead of tourist, but hey It was my first time there, so gotta do all the touristy stuffs.

Next stop would be the apollo bay, we were there for lunch. Had fish and chip at some random restaurant, they taste just okay, but this scallop pie below from Apollo Bay bakery was good with lots lots lots of scallop meat inside.

Strolled around apollo bay before continuing our journey to the 12 apostles, reached there at around 3pm, walked towards the 12 apostles, and trust me, if I said the entrance of Great ocean road was crowded, this is way more than that. Very hard to have picture taken because we were there almost sunset, we had the sun on the opposite side therefore creating backlight.

We then passed through the London Bridge but didn’t stop as it was already dark. The drive back home was really really dark, no street lights at all and people there got mad when we turned our high beams lights on, we didn’t mean to but we really couldn’t see the road without the help of that. We should really thank Clinton ( thanks Clinton ! ), because he drove alone along the journey, 10 hours drive, I myself won’t even survive to drive this long.

For me, this trip was good, but I won’t recommend a day trip there, it was too tiring and we couldn’t see much in just few hours there, I believe this should be taken slowly, staying overnight along the great ocean stretch would be a good idea.
