This year in May, our family went on a holiday to Adelaide for a wedding, and we then extended it to travelling on the Great Ocean Road. It was a wonderful holiday, I can tell you that. After spending a week in Adelaide in our big motor home, yes a motor home! We were on our way to the Great Ocean Road. Because I have a lot to tell you about, I will only tell you about my favourite highlights, but if you wish to find out about more of my holiday, please ask me in a comment and I will do up another post!
Well, the first place we went was Warrnambool! It had the best playground ever but hey, it was also a pretty cool place. In Warrnambool there was an old restored town, that the public was allowed to go in. It was very well, done and the small fee to pay to get in was very well worth it!

|What a glorious sight.|
|This is only a glimpse of how magnificent it really is. |

Then a few minutes down the road we came upon London Bridge! The rock was connected to land but then one day 'London Bridge came falling down'.
Later on we came upon The Lock Ard Gorge. This place has some history, as many shipwrecks happened at Lock Ard Gorge.

Then we were at the 12 Apostles. I have to admit that it wasn't as breath taking as I thought it would be, but it was none-the-less a beautiful sight. There isn't much to say about them but, just to say that it is a beautiful part of the world, and it was a pleasure admiring God's beautiful creation.

Sadly we had to leave the 12 Apostles, but we still had many more places to enjoy.
We were still on the great Ocean Road but close to the end of our trip, and we were on our way to a tourist attraction, called Mt Otway Lighthouse. We were informed by the lady at the information centre that we might see lots and lots of kolas in the trees. At the beginning I began to doubt her word, but when we got further in, by crikey they were everywhere! They were so big and fat and plump! Almost every tree had a koala on it. Some were really low down on a trunk that we could have touched it. Apparently there is over 9000 of them - and they are causing a bit of a problem to the environment.
|Just on of the cute kolas!|
The next day we spent going to Melbourne, and once in Melbourne we spent the day exploring the city, it was really cool. It was Mother's day so we had brunch at a restaurant, and the food was fit for a king. Then we had to leave to catch a plane :( :(
Well,that is the end of our holiday highlights. I hope you enjoyed reading it, and if you would like to find out more about my holiday, please leave a comment and I would love to tell you more!
