Assalamualaikum and hi everyone,
Long time no see, I know right. I’ve been caught up with projects and assignments. Finally I’m done with the semester and finals are what’s left. I’m planning to blog everyday until I’m up to date with current situation. I have long list of blog post ideas to write from last 2 months until today. So, I’m going to tick off one at a time.
For now let finish up with my long overdue Melbourne Trip post. Whats left are Day 2, Day 3 and post on places I recommend to go either I make it last time or not. Some of you might staying longer than I did and have more time to discover Melbourne.
Day 2 was started with a breakfast at the backpackers. They did provide common breakfast menu like cereal, milk, juices and some fruits. People who staying there pretty much wake up early morning and started their journey right after. Some of them started to leave the place as early as 7am in the morning, we left around 8am.
If you remember, we did not make it to 12 Apostale Lookout on day 1 so today we drove back there for some sight seeing. It was about 40-45minutes car drive to the lookout point. When we arrive there, it was so windy and cloudy. Nevertheless it was fascinating. The view was breathtaking.
From there we decided to go to another lookout point thats allow us to go down near the beach. Love the beach smell and tingling feeling of sands under my feet. This place was called Loch Arch Gorge in Princetown. Just a fun fact; Great Ocean Road is not a destination. It is an Australian National Heritage listed 243 kilometres stretch of road along the south-eastern coast of Australia between the Victorian cities of Torquay and Allansford. Meanwhile, The Twelve Apostles is a collection of limestone stacks off the shore of the Port Campbell National Park, by the Great Ocean Road. It was located at few different places where they build lookout point for you to stop by and enjoy the scenery.
We spend an hour to walk around and snap pictures in both places. It was 10 minutes apart from each other. From GOR we decided to go to Mckenzie WaterFall that located in Grampian National Park. On the way there, we came across bunch of windmills! They were huge and so far away. Its near Glenthomson-Caramut Road in Glenthompson. We make ourselves all the up then found out it was close due to construction. Bumped! But still it was a nice place to visit. We stop by near Reeds Lookout point in Zumsteins. The scenery was something that you need to witness with your own eyes. The pictures does not do it justice.That’s it. We had picnic near the park in the town on the way down. The town was full with people and caravans. They provide camping site and caravan park side. They we drove back home for another 3 hours. Reach Geelong around 9pm and had some dinner at Mamak Restaurant. Not like our typical Malaysian mamak. Then went to sleep at some friend place and tomorrow going to be another long day.
ps: Im having trouble to standardise the picture without manually resize it. Lat time using blogger template, we can set the size of this pictures. WordPress is totally new to me and if any of you know how to fix it let me know 🙂
