Photo Post – The Great Ocean Road and South Australia

Despite some initial bumps in the road, our roadtrip from Adelaide to Melbourne was wonderful and offered a ton of amazing sights and landscapes. It was quite a busy few days between driving every day and seeing as much as possible, and even if the weather didn’t always play along nicely, it was still an amazing few days on the road. Here are my best shots (minus the already posted wildlife).

Descent to Wreck’s Beach – this was a tricky and slipper climb despite the stairs because it had rained so much, but we made it all the way down. Unfortunately, it was high tide so we couldn’t go anywhere when we reached the bottom.

Unexpected Sinkhole by Childer’s Cove – Found this one while looking for a good vantage point for some pictures of the ocean. It’s not mentioned on any tourist maps or information panels!

Marriner’s Lookout – this was an amazing view, and this picture doesn’t do it justice.
