The 12 Apostles, Great Ocean Rd, Victoria with Kids – Family Travel Blog

I just walked in the door, unpacked and put a load of washing on and thought it a good time to fill you in on our long weekend. We headed off down the Great Ocean Rd for 3 days, even though it was winter I thought it was still as good a time as any for a visit. Nothing like taking an independent Great Ocean Road tour and stop when you like and stay for as long as you like. (more…)
