The Great Ocean Road Part 3


We did some kayaking on the Glenelg river on the Victoria-South Australia border.

Of course, more birds posing for us.  These are wild Emus.  Basically what Velociraptors evolved into (kinda).

This part of Australia sits atop of limestone bedrock formed millions of years ago when this area was below sea level. This means there are lots of caves about (which I will devote another post too).

Oh look, another empty beautiful beach…  The  water is a bit cold this time of year (18C/64F).

As we wind to the end of the Great Ocean Road proper, we will continue along the coast on and off on our way to Adelaide. We have crossed into South Australia (SA).  Interestingly, South Australia has a 30min time zone shift, so we are 30 minutes behind Victoria.  SA is much flatter than Victoria.  Being able to drive at 100kph on a non-major highway was a shock.
