Melbourne trip (Day 3 Story 6) Still is Great Ocean Road

A bit further down from Twelve Apostles will be Loch Ard Gorge. There are few walking trails which may take 2-3 hours to complete all. We chosen one light walking trail, I cannot remember at Loch Ard Gorge or London Bridge, around half an hour. There are few information board at parking, for the history and information on Twelve Apostles Marine National Park.

Steps to beach.

Then, the London Bridge or London Arch. Click on the link to learn more on why it fall down :) Of course, if you are there, there is information board explaining the reason with illustration.

If you asked me if it is worth to visit Great Ocean, if you have been driving along 1st Highway and Bodega Bay in US, initially I would think it is almost the same but I think it is different and not comparable. Yes they both have nice ocean view. Great Ocean has the apostles. I believe if you have time to explore, there will be chances to see more wild life in Great Ocean Road, e.g. koala.

The sunset.

It's time to depart to Warrnambool. You may follow the road signboard or GPS direction. The end of Great Ocean story.

Thanks for sharing. Yes we have the 12 Apostles, Koalas, etc but there is waaay more to see on the Great Ocean Road than what most tourists see. You really can't spend less than 3 or 4 days if you want to see the best parts, an d more if you really want to explore. I'm a bit of a local expert on the Great Ocean Road and I'm happy to share some of it's secrets with anyone who asks.
