Beautiful Victoria

New World Explorer


The Great Ocean Road is one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in the world to take a road trip.

Just down the road from the Twelve Apostles Visitors Centre are the Gibson Steps. Walk down these steps to the beach for a close-up view.

Here you can experience a new perspective on the power of the waves and the height of the rocks. You can even touch the rocks and feel how easy they crumble away.

Take time to watch the water crashing around the base of the limestone stacks to understand the true power of the ocean and how it’s constantly shaping our earth.

I shot this video on Fujifilm S10 around 7am (bit of wind noise, I did not have external microphone attached) 

Rising out of the Southern Ocean, alongside Australia's famous Great Ocean Road, you'll find the 12 Apostles – limestone pillars that were once connected to the mainland cliffs. Waves and wind carved them into caves, then arches, and eventually battered them down into 45-metre (150-foot) tall columns. There are, in fact, only eight Apostles at the moment, but who knows when the next stretches of cliff will become pillars.

London Bridge is a natural arch off the coast that offers one of the best views along the journey. It’s an experience you won’t want to miss in Victoria, and no drive on the Great Ocean Road is complete without visiting the London Bridge, and all it has to offer.

On 15 January 1990, one of the arches for the London Bridge collapsed due to natural causes. It was the link to the mainland, leaving behind one of the arches off the coast.

The Great Ocean Road officially starts south of Melbourne in Torquay and ends in Allansford, Victoria. Stretching a total distance of 151 miles (243 km). The major stops along the road are Bells Beach, Otway National Park, and the famous Twelve Apostles. There are no photos (or videos) that give the road the justice it deserves, so be prepared to be blown away by the curves this road has to offer.
