Great ocean road





This is one of the most famous destinations in melbourne. Almost 250 kms going along the south west coast of Australia. We took our Kia carnival and went there on a summer day.(Its recommended to go there on a summer day because days are longer than nights. From 6.00 am to almost aroung 8.30 pm there will be sunlight in Australia so we can really enjoy the beauty of the longest coastal road in bright sun light.) That was a great experience for all of us. The sceneries on the way is really breath taking. There are cliff points where we can stop the car and enjoy the beauty of nature. And on the way there are few beaches where we can go and have a dip. The main atttraction of the Great Ocean tour is the 12 Apostles (There is only seven remaining now) in the sea. Twelve Apostles are gaint limestone rocks stacks that stand in the sea near to the coast line. They are created by constant erosion because of the harsh weather in that area.

We started at 5.00 in the morning and had packed every thing for breakfast lunch and dinner.One of the graeat advantages of touring in australia is that, we can find BBQ parks almost between every 10kms where there will be good toilets, play area for kids and BBQ area where we can heat up our food. so that we don't have to spent our money buying food from outside.








This is picture was taken from our First halt a park with a small lake where we had our small break fast. This is actually the starting point of all the excitements. The sun was slowly coming up.




The picture above was taken from a cliff point, there we can see a cargo ship going through far ocean.










These are the images of Apostles, no wonder why there are more than million tourists a year this is really wonderfull. And this is one of my favorite pictures of all that I took.




There are also helecopter services which take us to the sky over the whole place and have a better view of the nature.
