Great Ocean Road – The 12 Apostles

The 12 Apostles are an iconic landmark along the Great Ocean Road and are well worth the drive along Victoria’s scenic coastline. I grew up just a short two-three hour drive away and it’s only now that I’ve come to appreciate just how much there is to see and do so close to my home. This lookout point is also just one of the many scattered along the coast and […]


Grampians National Park

This post could just read visit the Grampians National Park and leave it at that. Such is the abundance of beauty and attractions in the area. But to be honest it wouldn’t be giving the area the respect it deserves so allow me to show you why the area is worth your time.

MacKenzie Falls

MacKenzie Falls in the Grampians is perhaps the most impressive waterfall in the entire area.

Even if you don’t want to see the falls I highly recommend the drive but be sure your car has the power to handle the climb. Upon reaching Mackenzie Falls […]

As anybody who’s undertaken the […]


Cape Otway, Mother Nature’s Wonderland

Cape Otway is a short (in Australian terms) 4 hour drive from where I grew up yet I’ve only ever visited it once, when I was far to young to ever really appreciate it. Sure the winding roads of the Great Ocean Road were fun back then but never would I have stopped to marvel at just how great a job mother nature had done in this little part of […]


Great Ocean Road – London Arch

The Great Ocean Road makes for amazing driving as you struggle to keep your eyes on the road and take in the view. Stretching some 243 kilometers along the victorian coastline it is littered with photo opportunities to take your breath away. Perhaps one of the more popular stops along the Great Ocean Road is the London Arch, formerly London Bridge before its freak collapse on the 15th of January […]
