Leaving Melbourne Australia, we headed South towards Torquay and the start of the Great Ocean Road. Like our recent road trip in Oregon (USA) we drove slowly, stopping frequently, hiking, looking, photographing, and just taking it all in.
Here are a few of the highlights as we drove from Torquay West towards Apollo Bay:
- Australia is big, vast, and the Great Ocean Road is slow to travel on.
- Stop often, and be prepared to walk. We easily walked 10-15K steps each day.
- Bring insect repellent. Lots of it.
- Bring a light jacket, the weather is very changeable.
- I am a fan of the Lonely Planet series. If you are too, check out: Lonely Planet – Australia.
