Grean Ocean Road (12 Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge & London Bridge)

2 months after visiting, here are the photos. Unfortunately, shooting at 2pm onwards isn't very conducive and helpful to a photographer, but one can't complain right?

So here is it. The grand entrance and the official start of it!

And along the way, this fella showed up...
So did this little birdie... Guess it must have been really jealous over the attention that the koala was getting.
Along the way, you have scenic lookouts that gives you all kinds of view as the road hugs the terrain and make it's way...
A little secluded beach.
The main event of GOR as it's commonly called: 12 Apostles; representing the rocks that are still standing tall.

The other side of the 12 Apostles.

Still standing tall.


From there, we headed on to Loch Ard Gorge. There's a story behind it and it's best read from this image.




View of the gorge from the top.

Imagine swimming your way into this gorge...

The opposite view.
Swimming and battling against those waves that would want to bash you against that cliff face...
And finally, one more main "event".
London Bridge... Well, it used to be connected, but back in the 1990, it broke apart leaving a gap in between the mainland and ... the rock. Well, that's the power of the wind, waves and sand for you.

We used the services of Go West Tours. Great commentary, driving and music. They have this "leave your comments book" and this is what my wife drew and wrote. Cute huh?

One thing is certain about this trip: GO before the mother nature destroy the rest of what's left!!!

The End.
