We arrived at the Wicked office in Adelaide with high hopes of a really cool van, only to have them dashed when they pulled up with the van that would be ours for the next week! It was dreadful, we have taken pictures to show people when we return but for the time being, they are too bad to put on this website! Regardless of that it was great to be back in a van, the last two hostels we stayed in weren't good and we were pleased to have a bit of freedom again. From Adelaide we drove to a place called Mt Gambia which has a blue lake, its pretty cool, its an old volcano crater and something in the water makes it really blue at certain times of the year. We stayed for one night then travelled onto a place called Warrnambool where we stayed on a caravan park right by the beach and it was freezing!! Quite a few people on this camp site took the opportunity to take photos of our awful van, how embarrassing! The next day we eventually got to the start of the Great Ocean Road. The coastline was just stunning, we loved it, we stopped off at all the tourist spots along the way: Bay of IslandsThe Grotto LookoutLondon Bridge (Has fallen down...literally!! It used to be joined to the land but part of it gave way and when it happened there were 2 people stranded on the bit in the sea and they had to be rescued by helicopter!)The ArchBlow Hole and Thunder CaveThe famous 12 Apostles Each stop was just as stunning as the last, everything was really close together so it got a bit tedious getting in and out of the van all the time but each time we stopped it was more than worth it. From the 12 Apostles we drove to the Otway rainforest and did the Tree Top Walk. The walk was brilliant, it was a suspended walkway which literally was in the tree tops, there were some pretty scary bits! The highest point was 47 metres which was at the top of a spiral staircase which swayed-eeks! On the drive back from the Otway rainforest we saw a Koala in a tree, it was the best thing ever, we stopped and took loads of photos. We were lucky to actually see it moving as well given the fact that they actually sleep for about 20 hours a day! Good timing! Next stop was Apollo Bay. We arrived at the campsite to find that it was full-oops! But the owner said we could park on his front lawn! When I realised he was being serious, that is exactly what we did, set up camp on his front lawn! Apollo Bay was a nice little town, it was like the Lake District on the coast. You looked one way and had the beach and looked the other and had the mountains, it was lovely. From Apollo Bay we continued on to a place called Lorne, this was a really pretty little town with a lovely beach. We had a walk around the town and had our lunch before heading off again to get to Torquay. Just after Lorne, we stopped at Aireys Inlet to look at the lighthouse, the lighthouse that was in 'Round the Twist'! On the way into Torquay we stopped at the famous Bells Beach, that was pretty cool, no waves when we were there though! We then arrived in Torquay. We really liked Torquay, it is basically a surfy town with a good surf beach and great shops! We stayed for 3 days in Torquay just chilling out really, we went to the surf museum which was good, did a bit of shopping at Surf City Plaza and watched the surfers at the beach. There is also a place called Danger Point where everyone goes kite surfing so we sat there a few times watching them being nearly carried away by their kites! For anyone going to Victoria you must drive along the Great Ocean Road, I've already said it, but I'll say it again, its just stunning, we loved it...
