When we arrived in Melbourne, we immediately went out and explored the city. We grabbed breakfast and headed to Lorne. After gulping coffee in one of the shops there, we made the best decision. To go on a roadtrip to The Great Ocean Road. It was a rainy and windy day which made the trip a little hard. We weren’t able to enjoy the view with the sun in the Twelve Apostles but it still took my breath away. Definitely one for the books.
Took a quick shot in the airport to remind me that I am indeed in Melbourne. After almost 10 hours of flying from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore to Melbourne, it was such a relief to finally arrive in the land down under 🙂
Our first meal in Australia and I wasn’t disappointed. Seriously. Australia has the best food ever. I would fly 10 hours again just to have a meal in this lovely place.
Saw this ANZAC Memorial Park in Lorne where we stopped for a cup of coffee 🙂
Had to take a quick shot of my boots that I haven’t used in months. 🙂 The last time I wore them was during my trip to Dubai and I was lucky to visit on Winter time.
I had to take a picture of these trees. They were so tall and I thought it’s very unique. If you look closer, you can see a hint of the beach.
How little am I compared to these gigantic trees. I don’t know the name of this tree so if you do, leave it in the comment section below 🙂
I wore jumpshorts but the weather was colder than I imagined so I had to wear leg warmers and a jacket (my brother’s hoodie). Not the fashion I want to sport but when the cold weather strikes, you do what you have to do. *grin*
The lovely houses situated near the beach and opposite the tall trees. I bet the view from the top rooms is to die for!
I wanted to buy a jacket in one of the shops but I couldn’t find one that I like. And we had limited time so I didn’t have enough time to visit all the shops.
What a lovely town. I really love this place. No rush. Just calm. Relaxing vibes here.
Quick stop for a photo-op with my brother.
Another fun shot with my brother’s best friend. The best host in Melbourne.
Hello from The Great Ocean Road!!!
My brother took a photo of me while I’m taking a photo of him. LOL.
Welcome to Port Campbell! The loveliest small town I’ve ever been to. The food is amazeballs. The place is quiet and away from the hustling and bustling of the city. It’s the perfect getaway.
Chicken parmigiana for my dinner. The servings in Australia are big. The only country where I have a hard time finishing a plate. It was dark so this image doesn’t give any justice to this meal. And I love that there is always “usually” a side of salad in every order.
Front area of the place we stayed for one night.
It has its own Brewery but I haven’t tried their beer. I may have regretted that decision in the morning.
The beautiful view from the balcony. I think these cottages are for rent as well. Look at those lovely trees.
This is the entrance to the Brewery and the hostel we stayed for a night.
It was a very quiet morning. We woke up early because we wanted to visit The Twelve Apostles again and Loch & Gorge. There were literally no people. I felt like I was in a horror movie. LOL.
Sadly, this place was closed so I wasn’t able to try their local pizza.
Our simple breakfast. This cafe was the only one open and I must say all the sandwiches I ate in Australia were all on point.
I love seeing buildings like these. Simple. I don’t get to see this often in the Philippines.
My brother and kuya Pau enjoying the morning breeze in Port Campbell.
Took a quick shot on our way to the beach.
Quiet town. Definitely my kind of town. Not to mention the weather was cool.
Another shoefie on the way to the beach. It was way too cold to wear flip flops.
It was a gloomy day but nonetheless I enjoyed our time here.
Beachfront properties. I wanted to eat in the restaurant in the photo above (glass walls) but it was still closed.
Ending this post with a picture of my brother. I’m very grateful to him because I wouldn’t think of visiting Australia if it wasn’t for him. I am so glad I did and we’re planning to visit Australia again this January for the Australian Open. Stay tuned.
