Silent Sunday #23

I’m still picking photographs from our many trips Down Under. This one is from 2016.

The spectacular Great Ocean Road which spans 400 kilometres (249 miles) from the town of Torquay (Victoria) to Nelson on the South Australian border, winds alongside the wild and windswept Southern Ocean. Home to craggy cliffs, empty beaches and bountiful wildlife, there’s an effortless affinity with nature along this iconic road. These photos were taken before we arrived at the famous 12 Apostles as we drove from Adelaide to Melbourne.

  1. This road also leaves me with great memories, when you think that it was built by WWI demobilized servicemen without work, it gives it another dimension. Thanks for posting.

  2. Love the Great Ocean Road: we did that trip in the early nineties, stopping at Bells Beach, Lorne, Apollo Bay, Warrnambool (where the car broke down 😕), and then on to Mount Gambier. It was an amazing drive with spectacular scenery.

  3. it’s been a long time since I was in Australia, bicentenary year in fact (1988). The beach and island look great for snorkelling. I would love to go back down under one of these days when it;s safe to travel again.

      1. We’ve driven Melbourne to Sydney, Melbourne to Adelaide, Sydney to Adelaide and Sydney to Cairns. All of which have been splendid in their own ways.

      2. You took some great photos which from Glenelg onwards also reminded me of our travels. We’re hoping to visit Australia again in 2022/23 when we’ll also visit Western Australia.
