Day 6 – Oz Trip 2014 – The GOR Part 2 – The Adventure

The famous GOR is a long drive journey along the ocean side where throughout the journey we witnessed the world’s most scenic coastal drive. There are few stops that you may want to stop along the drive and they are Apollo Bay, Lorne, Torquay, Anglesea, Port Campbell, Port Fairy, Ocean Grove, Point Lonsdale (lighyhouse) , Portland and etc.

The main stops that you should try and drop would probably in my personal opinion be the beautiful lorne..there is a lot of beautiful vacation home and motel for you to stay overnight and enjoy the view.

But since we were behind our schedule we decided only to stop at the Apollo Bay. Here is where we had our halal lunch meal. Before this in 2006 me and hubby also the tour bus stop here for fish and chips!

To get here is 4 hours drive already. The peak of our long journey! Phew..my parents did ask me what is so special about the GOR. I just couldn’t describe why or what. I just told them just wait until we arrive…and really this specticular view made everyone amazed with the Almighty creation.

We were very lucky to reach there before it was dark. Winter means early light out! Stop also at Port Campbell to witness the historical place where a ferry capsized here and only 2 survivors found alive! We took a picture of us during our honeymoon here back in 2006 and this time we took one more, same spot with Wawa. Too bad to get to the seaside you have to climb down the steepy strairways. We dare not bring Aqib down with us. Only me hubby, my bro and Wawa went down.

By the time we finish taking pictures it was already magrib dark. Just enough time to start our long 4 hours journey back to our kg via road. No choice we didn’t managed to turn back on time.

If you have ample time and budget definitely should try stay overnight at one of the stops.

We reached home by 10pm through the dark highway road b4 reaching Melbourne. It was a very challenging driving simpang siur on the way…but on our way back we can cut through straight road as it is already dark and nothing to see.

Alhamdulillah
We reached home safely.

Enough GOR for this time! Cukuplah 2 kali!! 😅😅
