The Great Ocean Road
“Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” ~Roald Dahl
There was only one thing on my “must-do” list for our Australia trip…take one of the world’s most scenic coastal drives, the Great Ocean Road. We set out to make the drive in one day (although I would recommend a weekend trip), beginning in Melbourne and heading towards the Twelve Apostles and back. The weather was perfectly aligned with our plans, and we saw the most magnificent beaches, ran around in the soft sand, hiked quiet and green trails, spotted both a koala and a kangaroo in the wild, and spent our lunch break in the popular vacation town of Lorne. And we drove. Eventually the coastline slipped away and we drove through eucalyptus-lined wilderness, and then expansive green farmland, before arriving back along the coast, arriving just in time to see the sunset over the Twelve Apostles. It was magic.
