I keep asking myself “Why has it taken us 13 years to get here?” Well. At least, this magnificence is here and will be here for thousands of years, yet.
This trip started off on the wrong foot, weather-wise. Read Part 1. But it has gone from strength to strength because The Great Ocean Road and its Twelve Apostles are nothing short of spectacular!
The best thing is, it is all natural. Not man made at all, unlike the Eiffel Tower or the Sydney Harbour Bridge or the Opera House. The Twelve Apostles has the added backdrop of sunrise and sunset. The sky, sea and sand colours will be different depending on the time of your visit. Total eye candy for the photographer and nature lover in you.
There are numerous hiking trails for the boot. This blog is not so much to share our experience, but more of a reminder for me to go back and do a proper 4 to 7 days of the Great Ocean Walk. Organised Tours are available.
The sign post read “366 Steps” to Wreck Beach.
“Start counting, Gabo!”
“Mum, there are so many flies down here.”
Gabo abhors flies. Sobra. They’re his “spiders”. He spent the whole time complaining about the flies during our walks. Ariel asked if we could consider this as part of our planned “6 Walks for 2014”. I said yes, but this is equivalent to one walk only. Gosh, I love it when I tick off a goal!
The 366 steps climb up was tough. I burned some serious calories for sure. I think I shall just let the pictures do the talking, er… describing.
