Great Ocean Road
Along the scenic drive, you can embrace your spontaneous side and decide to take a stop wherever you find a breathtaking view.
You’ll find that these will be mainly beach views as you take in the turbulent ocean and the small hills and cliffs around the coast.
I haven’t travelled the full road but even travelling for a part of it will give you scenic views that you can’t find in Melbourne. The left picture is of Erskine Falls in Lorne, a popular destination about 20 minutes from the famous ocean road. It’s a short walk from the carpark to a platform where you can observe the 30 metre drop from above.
The bottom right picture, is part of our first spontaneous stop to admire the foggy, mysterious and empty coast around the beginning of the drive. Despite the gloomy weather, having a whole beach to yourself to walk on and enjoy the air outside city life can be quite a reality-check.
