Otway Ranges

The southern Australian coastline is extremely beautiful and we took a trip down there a year or two ago with some old family friends (see feather man). The Great Ocean Road curves along the coast line – often on very sheer cliffs and hairpin turns, for 234km from Torquay to Warrnambool. I’ve been along that road a few times before as a scenic option returning from South Australia; however this time we decided to spend a little more time exploring and checked out the Otway Ranges. We stayed in Apollo Bay which gave us easy access to the rainforest and the other sights along the coast. Everything about the coast is so beautiful and the National Park is breathtaking. There is a lot of history around the area too with shipwrecks, light houses and all sorts of memorabilia. All in all the region is a definite stopping point if you are down that way.
