Great Ocean Road, Twelve Apostles, Melbourne Australia


Let me sacrify my weekend afternoon nap, quickly update the Melbourne travel post before another new trip is coming up, ^_^..I have heard a lot about Great Ocean Road and I make sure that we made a trip to this great place during our stay...

We booked a full day trip via Go West tour, went out at 7 am and returned to hotel around 9pm..what a long trip we had ...
We started with a simple breakfast at the hotel, there was nobody there except us..too early it seem..

Some great photos. Next time I'm sure you would want to stay longer. You could enter the Great Ocean Road Facebook competition with one of your photos. Good luck.
