It's been another long day on the road - although it hasn't really been 'on the road' with so many stops and things to do.
First stop was a lookout viewing area over Port Campbell - one from each side of Port Campbell! From there it was down to view the Loch Ard Gorge and the bay after which that was named.
Back down to the 12 Apostles and what a huge difference in weather and ocean. Yesterday was cold and blustery with a huge ocean swell and white horse caps on the ocean - today was almost flat as a pancake and as we travelled down the coastline, it seemed to get more and more calm. As sadi, a HUGE weather change. Almost a pleasure being here again!
Next stop was a diversion away from the main road and out to the Otway Treetop Fly - took us 15 mins or so to get there and a 300mtr walk from the carpark to the entrance. Once paid for we wandered down the track and onto the suspended steel platform circuit which took us along the treeline - proably about half way up the height of some of the ginormous 100ft gums which were reaching for the sky. A whole valley full of them!
It was a bit of a hike back to the carpark again but eventually made it and planned next stop was Apollo Bay.
We had probably driven a whole 85kms from Port Campbell to Apollo Bay but it seemingly took us hours!!! Had a bit to eact at Apollo Bay and off we went again.
From there on, we stopped at lookouts along the Great Ocean Road, the whole coastline of which was amazing and fine weather and calm seas being good to us - a sight to behold as they say.
Made our way to Geelong for the night so that was that! The Great Ocean Road trip is over!
