The Great Ocean Road – Driving through the “No worries” land

Posted by on January 11, 2013

Whenever you thank an Aussie for something he will answer with “No worries, mate”. It looks like the Australians are always in a good mood and never have any worries, but with the most beautiful nature, most pristine beaches and nice weather all year round, why would they. And The Great Ocean Road is definitely no exception from the “No worries” list.

But before we drove over the Great Ocean Road we saw some of the nicest beaches in Mallacoota and Narrooma. Then we headed to the Wilsons Promontory National Park where we camped near the Squeaky Beach. It is called like that because you hear a squeaky sound when walking on the white sand.

Coming back to the Great Ocean Road I need to say that it’s one of the best routes to drive. The scenery is amazing with blue-greenish water all the way along the coast. And the rock formations called The Twelve  Apostles is incredible. Water and wind carved their way into the rocks leaving peacks in the middle of the water, a view which seems unreal.

After the drive over The Great Ocean Road we returned to Melbourne where we met Uta and Richard with whom we did the hiking in the Colca Canyon in Peru and met a couple of times in South America. They showed us the city by night and Richard drove over the streets that are used for the F1 Race in Melbourne which is the first race of the year.
