On the 14th Jan we started our journey along the Great Ocean Road, we started from Phillip Island and drove all the way up to Torquay. This was a little surfing town and the weather wasn't that great so we only stopped for lunch and to look at the beach.
In the afternoon we carried on the Lorne another small town and went up to a I repoint to take photos of the great views! We then carried on driving to Apollo Bay and along the way saw the areas that had been affected by the recent bush fires. Everything was black and houses had been completely destroyed. We stopped in Apollo Bay for the night at a campsite along the river.
The next day (15th Jan) we carried along the great ocean road the 12 Apostles which is one of the most famous landmarks on the route. They were big slabs on rock in the sea, the weather wasn't great so our pictures were a bit disappointing but it was still good to see! After that we carried on to port Campbell where we stopped for lunch, after lunch we drove up to halls gap. This was probably my favourite place of the trip, the camp site was so nice and so cheap! There were so many kangaroos hopping around the camp site although it was quite scary as one lady took a photo of one and it kicked her in the face! We went for the nicest Indian meal that was recommended by the owners of the campsite.
On the 16th Jan, we did a 3 hour hike up to the pinnacle in Halls Gap. We were told it was only a 30 minute walk so me and the other girls stupidly all wore flip flops and we actually ended up climbing rocks for 3 hours! The view at the top was amazing and was definitely worth the hike however we took a wrong turn on the way back down so it ended up taking us even longer! We also visited the MacKenzie waterfalls which was so pretty and both me and Sophie got in the water at the bottom for a swim, it was freezing! The rest of the day was spent driving to Cape Jarvis which is near Adelaide which we spent our final night in the van at a campsite.
