To the Great Ocean Road! Part II

Read the first part of the Great Ocean Road trip here.

The final stop, The 12 Apostles – one of the most famous scenic spots in Melbourne. While in the previous stop we saw a few apostles at once, there are at least eight here. It was blazing hot and flies were everywhere, but the plan was to hang around the spot until the sun sets. There were several lookout points here as well. The best being the furthest.

This is the view from the first point.

That’s the other point. At the end of the rock. This spot reminds me of the scene where Elizabeth watched her ships against the Spaniards in the Elizabeth: The Golden Age starring Cate Blanchett. Only that it was gloomy in the movie. And it was England.

View from the next point. The sun was beginning to set and the sky started turning purple and pink.

The other side of the point. The sun reflected its light on these two. It was amazing!

Getting darker.

 My favorite photo of the apostles during sunset!

The Great Ocean Road is one of the world’s most scenic road and is 243km long (Wikipedia told me). It’s one of the places you must visit when you’re in Melbourne. The views are breathtaking and amazing. If you’re planning to drive, rent a car, read more about going to Great Ocean Road and use this guide prior to driving. It’s going to be a really long way, so be prepared! 
If driving is not an option, there are several luxury coach tours to the GOR that you can book – pretty comfortable coaches with excellent guides (and I really mean excellent) who’ll give you more information along the journey. I recommend:
Now, group picture! Credit to the Hall residents who planned, organized and made this trip happen.
Non-Canon users. Apeng, Zan and Tasha. The co-pilot and sandwich makers. Tasha is looking for a husband who is good at “lipat kain”.
Canon FTW! Rizq, myself and Irfan. Thanks to Rizq who drove us and planned the trip. I am only the sandwich eater and the grocery bag holder.

Until then!
