Great Ocean Road – 12 Apostles

What shall we say, that’s why most people travel the Great Ocean Road.

Gibson Steps were just great! Nasty, cold, wet and windy weather and therefore no people at all! Hm, not tooooo difficult actually because the car park is to small for coaches and the steps to hard work for most of the Asian tourists, I like!

The official highlight of the Port Campbell National Park are the 12 Apostles, but honestly for me they were indeed the most crowded but also the last spectacular of the park. But, here we go, including rain… (Don’t forget, this is the absolute only toilette in the whole park, outside of the town, funny enough it comes with instructions 🤣)

Toilet usage instructions, and yes, they are needed!!!
Und weil so schön war, hier noch einmal, die berühmten 12 Apostles

One of the most spectacular views here is hardly to be banned on a photo, it’s the Razorback Rock. The ocean here is like a which pit, roaring and spluttering, faszinating.

Furthermore, the view down to Loch Ard Gorge is stunning. And the view at the bottom even more, especially with no people around.

What we didn’t expect was this great view at the shore of the Shearbrooke River.

Port Campbell itself is a lovely small town with a cool pub.

Hasenplage, aber süss sind sie

The Grotto

What noone ever talks about is Bay of Islands Coastal Park along the shipwreck coast which was absolutely stunning and almost abadoned by people.

Bye bye Great Ocean Road – heading off towards South Australia!
