Cliffs and pristine beaches of the Great Ocean Road, Australia

 

Great Ocean Road  is around two hundred and fifty kilometers of coastal road along rugged limestone cliffs in south coast of Victoria . For those who like to drive along all day stopping by at stunning lookouts , this is one of the best places in the world

The one hour drive from Twelve Apostles to Lady Bay resort Warrnambool is quite a drive . Absolutely no one around, no cars ahead of you or passing by or following you, pitch dark barren horizons on either side and only your headlights lighting up the two parallel straight lines till infinity. You are kept alert by roadsigns that caution you from crossing kangaroos. The last thing you want to do is hit them. There is a phenomenon you should be aware of specially when driving in cold winter nights here. There is mist and fog in the air upto a height of about a meter on the road. As you drive through the fog, you feel like you lose orientation , kind of like floating in the clouds , some sort of hallucination. Beware.

An exhausting steep climb down and up to get to the base of MacKenzie falls, but absolutely worth it
