Road trip from Melbourne to 12 Apostles (The Great Ocean Road)

12 Apostles, Great Ocean Road - Victoria, Australia

G’day MATE.

Oh jeez. Actually no one really says this in Australia – well no one I know anyway.

Before you scroll down to see the photos from this trip, please be aware that the quality may not be as good as the photos in my other blog posts. This is because this trip was years ago and I downloaded these photos from my Facebook account. I was just so keen to put them on Kaptain Kenny because this is definitely one of Australia’s most insane locations.

So nonetheless, enjoy!

The Twelve Apostles is a collection of limestone stacks off the shore of the Port Campbell National Park, by the Great Ocean Road in Victoria,Australia. Their proximity to one another has made the site a popular tourist attraction. Currently there are eight apostles left, the ninth one of the stacks collapsed dramatically in July 2005. The name remains significant and spectacular especially in the Australian tourism industry. (Wikipedia)

We hired a car in Melbourne’s CBD and drove around 2 hours through countryside before we hit The Great Ocean Road. This is a massive road which completely follow’s Victoria’s southern coastline. It’s a wonderful drive and a real must-see if you’re visiting Australia. We stopped along the way for burgers and coffees and continued on our way to the 12 Apostles. From memory the drive directly back to Melbourne was around 3.5-4 hours.

As always, if you have any questions or comments please feel free to send me a message – I do read them all and respond every time!
