Once back on the road we made good time until we reached the main coastal road and turned towards Apollo Bay. On the way we passed hundreds of shoes hung along the roadside left there by travellers. There were lots of opportunities to take photos when we reached the coast, especially when we reached the 12 Apostles, one of the highlights of the Great Ocean Road, where we took lots of pictures of the sandstone columns which make this one of the main tourist attractions. Being a public holiday, it was Labour Day weekend, it was really busy, in fact we saw more people than we had seen in any one place since we arrived in Australia. Continuing along the beautiful Great Ocean Road we marvelled at the views along this wonderful coastline.
The various campsites along the way were pretty much all full and being a Bank Holiday the fees were almost double the normal rates. We were keen to wild camp and eventually found a super spot, just a small pull off really, but we managed to stop behind some bushes enjoying a quiet night near Apollo Bay. A highlight for us was the opportunity to see Koala's as we looked for our camping spot.
It seems I've been travelling all my life. For the past eight years I've been following a simple, nomadic lifestyle full time touring in a camper van and meeting with other like minded travellers.
