For the longest time, it’s been my bucket list to visit The Great Ocean Road. From the name alone, it’s said to be one of the world’s most scenic oakley outlet drives, making it one of the most famous tourist destinations in Australia.
During cheap oakleys my first trip here in 2012, I was not able to see The Great Ocean Road, but this time around I made sure I was able to finally tick this wonder off my bucket list!
Located in the South Eastern part of Australia, The Great Ocean Road stretches 151 miles along the coast, making it one of the most scenic drives in the world. A good base would be Melbourne, which will take around 3 hours to reach the famous 12 Apostles. There are a lot of day tours that operate from Melbourne, which take you to the 12 Apostles and Loch Ard Gorge. Another option would be to rent a car and drive at your own pace, which allows you to make photo stops along the way.
The default first stop would be the 12 Apostles
From Melbourne, it’s an easy drive passing by smaller towns in Australia, beaches, and even wildlife (if you’re lucky) along the way!
Next stop would be The Loch Ard Gorge.
Located just three minutes from the 12 Apostles is this nature wonder. It’s amazing to see rock formations this picturesque. As you approach the shore of the gorge, you would feel a sense of being cast away in an isolated island.
