The Great Ocean Road – Day 1

Our first stop was Anglesea where we took a short walk and enjoyed a scenery that we should get quite used to in the following days, only to be surprised that it would be more and more amazing.

Our next stop was the Split Point Lighthouse near Aireys Inlet where we walked down to the beach as well.

The inlet is another lake behind the coast line with an inflow of natural waters and a beautiful beach. We could observe the sea crushing against the limestone rocks, eroding them over time and leaving behind a most impressive coastline made up of cliffs, stones, rocks and all sorts of flora and fauna remains.

We continued to Lorne – reminded of what kind of tourist thing we were actually doing.

Nevertheless the road was amazing, curvy, just a few meters from the sea, up and down the hills .. if only we had brought our Aprilias!

A small detour to the Erskine Falls near Lorne in the Angahook Lorne State Park was well worth the way:

See here for a short clip of the Erskine Falls:

Actually there seem to be a lot of threats that require your clear and present mind:

Oops .. watch your step!

Since the sun went down ..

.. we decided to stay near Apollo Bay for the night and found the Barham Picnic Reserve hidden in the forests. Wild camping again! 🙂
