Hey there folks! This is a continuation of my Melbourne adventure as part of the Royal Brunei Airlines media trip earlier this year. After a full day exploring Melbourne city including Eureka Tower and Melbourne Aquarium, the next day we were treated to a whole day drive along the famed Great Ocean Road. The drive was literally a journey of a lifetime, offering breathtaking scenery, dainty towns, full of historic atmosphere.
From the Great Ocean Road site:
The journey of a lifetime
Fresh, salty air fills you with a sense of adventure. Iconic landscapes loom, a sense of grandness and freedom sweeps in.
The Great Ocean Road, where nature’s drama unfolds at every turn.A coastal sanctuary of contrasting natural beauty, where unexpected hinterland waterfall walks reveal dappled lush forests at the edge of lively salt-washed villages.
There is rugged oceanic splendour and raw seascapes at every twist and turn of the road. Practically every meal will be served with an ocean view. With every stretch of the legs you’ll be invigorated by the fresh sea air.
The winding coastal roads promise better views around each bend, and, as you will discover, they are. There is superb wine, fine dining and relaxed unwinding; fabulous flora, fauna, and fantastic fun along the way.
The journey spans from Torquay along the Surf Coast to Apollo Bay, then inland through the forested Otway region to emerge on the wild and well named Shipwreck Coast and Twelve Apostles. Welcome to the Great Ocean Road.

I wish the weather in Brunei was like this all year round!
