An April 2002 trip

Quote: Wow! What a fantastic and beautiful part of the world. The Great Ocean Road is a must when visiting Australia.
Visit the famous Bells Beach where they hold yearly surfing championships. Along the way, you pass the country towns along the sea of Lorne before arriving to the entrance of this spectacular nature wonder of the world.
When you arrive, the first thing you see is the ocean and mountains of peaks protruding out of the sea to heights of around 100 meters -- it will take your breath away. There are many walking tracks along about a stretch of 15 miles where you can stop and view the ocean and rock formations, and visit the wildlife and bird colonies. At sunset, which is the most beautiful time, the mountains and ocean reflect the colours of orange and silver. Take your time and breathe in Mother Nature at its best.
