We finally managed to put our foot into the Great Ocean Road. We ended up spending the day at Lorne with Ann. I have no idea why we have never done this long drive before. Or maybe I have…hmmmm.
Lorne is a such great place to spend your day with the family.
The kids played happily at the beach. There’s also an outdoor playground with barbecue pits next to it. The benches are perfect for lying down and lazing around.
The cafes and restaurants are all over. We ate fish and chips at Salty Dog and had our to go coffee from Moons Expresso Bar. It was worth the 2-hour trip with whining kids.
The highlight of the day was our decent down the mountain to see Erkinse Falls. My legs were almost separating from my body on our way up. And of course, Luis had to leave his trace by weeing at the stream next to the other tourists enjoying the beauty of the falls.
By the time we reached Teddy’s Lookout, we were all exhausted and thirsty.
The children were all quiet and asleep on our way back home. Best way to enjoy a long drive.
