We wrapped up the trip with a stop at Anglesea to see kangaroos! Not captive, not really wild…but possibly the most interesting caddies in the world:
We had a quick bite in Port Campbell – not terribly exciting, but just a simple pizza each. I wouldn’t go out of your way to try Nico’s pizza, but I wouldn't say that it was terrible at all. Pricey, but that's expected for the area.
Overall, the Great Ocean Road is a fantastic road trip that I would do again in a heartbeat. Where else can you drive along a beautiful coast, stop to smell eucalyptus, see prehistoric tree species, spot (and hear!) koalas from the tree tops, watch kangaroos hop around golf courses, and…well I could keep going!
We returned to Melbourne to continue our Australian journeys – separately. While he finished his time in Melbourne with plans to head to New Zealand, I decided to start thinking of my next steps. The dilemma? Where to go next!
I was stuck deciding between flying up north to the Great Barrier Reef or making my way up to Uluru & Alice Springs. Time did not allow for either – so it was coral vs. the outback.
The pleasures of difficult decisions :-)
