Goodbye Australia

Hello again!

Just a short post to sum up the trip to Aussieland. I’ve really enjoyed my time here and can see why people from all over the world have flocked to this country in the southern hemisphere. The weather, the people and the sites are a constant pull to stay. I also got the opportunity to go surfing in Torquay! (Looking forward to pursuing this further!!)  Myself and my friend Tom were able to rent out boards and wetsuits for $25 each for 2hrs, it was brilliant! (A special shout out to him for bringing me out and showing me the ‘surf city’!) I was bashed around in the waves in my groggy state after Saturday night but was woken up pretty quick!

The best bits for me was the Melbourne Museum and the McKenzie Falls. The trip to Sorrento and sufing are close behind though!

All in all, I am really sad to go and have to say a big thank you to Rachel, Aoife and all of their amazing housemates for making me feel at home and putting me up for the last couple of weeks. I look forward to the day I get to return the hospitality! 🙂

Well goodbye Australia, on for the next leg of my trip!

The Great Ocean Rd and The Grampians, Australia

The Great Ocean Road

Myself and Rachel booked on to a tour group through Peter Pan to see the Great Ocean Road and the Grampians. Our tour was held with Wild Life Tours and we had a guide with us the whole way through (although he was a bit on the scattered side!) We’d a great time and the sites that we were brought to were amazing!

 

We had a bit of a late start to the day because we may have slept in and just woke up when the bus was meant to be leaving but they held out for us… thank God! We headed off for the Great Ocean Road which brings you all along the coast. The beaches that we saw were beautiful, the wild life so cute (sleeping koala bears!!! agh!) and the jungle/ bush impressive. The bush walk was in Mait’s Rest Rainforest and I got to see some of the tallest trees!
