This is probably my greatest achievement as a blogger and aspiring photographer, to be able to travel to Australia, go on a Great Ocean Road tour and take the 12 Apostles Scenic Flight and yes, take aerial photography of Port Campbell Bay.
It was indeed an amazing experience. I told a friend an analogy of my experience but of course, I am not sharing it with you here. LOL. Well, I might do it for a price of Creme Brulee Macchiato at Starbucks, Subang Parade.
How to actually enjoy your Great Ocean Road drive?
If you’re using GPS, you might wanna key in the address to Port Campbell. The route will take you to Geelong, then to Port Campbell through Princess Highway. From Geelong, it would take a two-hour drive straight to Port Campbell. If you have 2 days to spare, you might want to stay at Port Campbell and Princetown areas.
You may spend time enjoying the world famous 12 Apostles, enjoy the scenic view of Loch Ard Gorge which is truly gorgeous, and you can even take the scenic flight to see aerial views of 12 Apostles, London Bridge and Loch Ard Gorge which looks exactly like a sea horse. Only it’s a lot bigger than a real sea horse.
You may spend a day just hanging around, enjoying the magnificent and breathtaking views along the Great Ocean Road, enjoy the richness of the hue of the ocean, admire the rolling countryside (as what my friend described), and just purely enjoy yourself amid the beauty of God’s creation… that would actually blow your mind.
There are different types of accommodation along the Great Ocean Road. So depending on your budget you may choose which type of hotel you want to stay there.
The next day, you may want to set out early, take a slow drive through the Great Ocean Road and you may just stop once in a while at a different scenic spot decks.
I truly enjoyed my trip to and through the Great Ocean Road and it was my greatest achievement as a paid blogger and an aspiring photographer. Did I say that already? LOL.
Anyways, enjoy the images I took from the 12 Apostles scenic helicopter flight I took with my son.
Images are taken using a Nikon D7000 with kit lens (18-105mm) at it’s highest Aperture value.
What can I say? I thank you Lord for this great blessing! (October 8, 2011)
