CRANBOURNE TO WARRNAMBOOL via Great Ocean Rd 304km (6.30hr)

1. WARRNAMBOOL TO CAPE OTWAY LIGHTHOUSE 275km (3.33hr) Cape Otway Lightstation, Otway, Lighthouse Rd, Cape Otway VIC 3233

Cape Otway Lighthouse was an experience and a half, the drive-in was lined with trees full of strange fury fruit (Koalas) they were hanging everywhere. Wild weather was invigorating at the cliff tops and brought a little terror into the eyes of the youngest one as he blew a few feet sideways on exiting the lighthouse. Luckily his umbrella was not up or we would have had a horror version of Mary Poppins



Road to Lighthouse

2. CAPE OTWAY TO GIBSON STEPS 76km (1.12hr) Gibson Steps, National Park, Great Ocean Rd, Port Campbell VIC 3269

3. TWELVE APOSTLE 900m (2min) 12 Apostle Photo Area, Princetown VIC 3269

The Great Ocean Road….winter may not be the best time for this, freezing cold winds and bucketing rain most of the stretch…have to come back


4. TWELVE APOSTLE TO WARRNAMBOOL 72.6km (57min) – 581 Raglan Parade, Warrnambool VIC 3280

Warning…warning never stay at a place that only shows close-ups of pillows, table decorations or the like. All Seasons Warrnambool I would avoid like the plague, dirty, holes in walls, broken bits in showers, toilets not flushing, noisy, funky smell and ant invasion….all on a stormy cold night….**Changed name and ownership so hopefully better now(2022)**

Would have checked out the Flag Staff Hill Shipreck Sound and Light show but a huge thunderstorm rolled through, so we missed out

NEXT: Waterfalls and giant gums
