Ocean Road day 2 & return to Melbourne

Our second day travelling along the Great Ocean Road started with the now familiar rain against the windows (and in this case the roof too). Undeterred by the weather we set out for Otway Fly, an elevated walk through the rainforest with a very high and wobbly viewing tower – surely it’s supposed to rain in theĀ  rainforest anyway?

Having had a bit of an educational experience and with the sun now out but accompanied by a fairly strong wind out we set off for some of the main sights of the GOR including the 12 Apostles.

Next stop was Warnambool where we spent the night. The following day was spent travelling back to Melbourne where we would spend the night before heading off to Cairns and hopefully some warmer weather and less rain. On the way we stopped for some lunch at Geelong where we found a nice waterfront and met some interesting people along the way.

Back in Melbourne, we had time for a quick look around the Australia Centre for the Moving Image and a drink (rudely interrupted by a sudden hail storm before we went to the observation deck to admire the views. Arriving just before dusk, we got to see the city in the daylight and in darkness.
