Great Ocean Road

Left Adelaide on the 25th to go on three day Great Ocean Road trip. On leaving Adelaide drove to a place called Keith for breakfast, going through bordertown on the way. Then headed onwards tot he Grampians, went to Mackenzie falls and some look out points, stayed in Halls Gap overnight.

The next day went on hike up a big hill to get another look at the Grampians, then back on the bus to go Warnambol, the start of the great Ocean Road. The Great Ocean Road was built by returning WW1 servicemen. Visited the Bay of Martyers, London Bridge (which did fall down a couple of years, stranding a couple of tourists) and 12 Apostles (one of which also fell down a few years ago). I think we stayed in Port Campbell overnight, but I can't remember anymore.

On the third and finally day went back to the 12 apostles again, drove to a Wildlife park and saw lots of Koalas and a couple of echindinas ( i've no idea how you spell that, its the Australian equivelent of a hedgehog), drove through Lorne (where we had lunch) and on to Melbourne via Torquay (home of Ripcurl) and Geelong. Arrived in Melbourne in evening.
