Man the Great Ocean Road is photogenic, it’s also completely different to what I expected in every way. Despite being one of the most popular tourist destinations in Australia, every town along the road has this laid back, beach bum vibe and we felt at home straight away. I was expecting it to be all glitz and glamour for some reason but it has retained a great quality that I’m sure has been there forever.
A lovely Australian host had asked Paul to compare the Great Ocean Road with the Pacific Coast Highway in California and he was really struggling, probably because his time in Australia was 8 years ago and a distant memory. Now that I’ve seen both I can say that they are completely different but both great drives in their own right. The Great Ocean Road veers inland quite a lot which I didn’t expect whereas the Pacific Coast Highway is literally on the cliff edge along every winding, death defying turn and this is what makes it for me. However, the towns along the Great Ocean Road really appealed to me and the famous postcard views are outstanding, we stayed in Lorne for one night and it was absolutely wonderful with a beautiful beach and some fantastic places to eat.
Anyway enough of my wittering, the beauty of the Great Ocean Road speaks for itself through the photos I captured during our fantastic visit.
