Where I stayed
Apollo Bay YHA
Went for a walk round Griffith Island at Port Fairy and saw my first wild Wallaby (yeah!). Then went up to Tower Hill where I was told there was loads of Kangaroos but only saw a couple of Emus.
First day of driving the actual Great Ocean Road and it pishes down all day. However in my dedication to bring you yet more pictures of the Ocean I braved the weather and stopped off at Bay Islands, Loch Ard and The 12 Apostles.
Drive through the Otway Forest & National Park is great just wish I had a better car than my Hyundai Getz.
Apollo Bay is in a lovely setting but didn't actually think much of the town which I thought was bit grotty and didn't even have a decent pub. It looked better the following morrning when it wasn't so grey and miserable.
The Hostel is absolutely fantastic though and is better than a lot of hotels I have stayed in. It is like a self build from Grand Designs and would recommend everyone to stay there.
