TB: Well somehow we booked ourselves on a massive tour, even though I only wanted to do a small one, so we go from Melbourne to Darwin on a bus, so far its been a good choice, we don't have to worry about most meals, accommodation, and driving.  So anyway we started the journey out on the Great Ocean Road it was cold, windy, and raining, so it didn't look so great to me.  We stopped at the famous Bells Beach, referenced in 'Point Break' with the 100 yr storm.  We pulled off to a eucalyptus tree lined road that koalas frequent and spotted 5 of them amongst parrots. 

Further down the road we stopped at the temperate rainforest and experienced the Otway Treetop Walk, I'm not going to lie I was a little freaked out, we were 25 metres above the ground and then climbed up this spiral staircase even higher where it was just swaying in the wind.  Oh and there were dinosaurs that scared Davis, especially the velocioraptor, we have photographic evidence.   We spent the night in a little town, and I mean little, I think its the same size as the court I live on in Gahanna, they just experienced a population boom from 2 persons to 8, and all 8 of them were in the pub.   We had an excellent bbq for dinner and then climbed back onto the bus to view the 12 apostles at sunset, extremely crap weather yet again, the sunset literally went from slightish orange/brown to gray and that was it.  The Twelve Apostles (according to wikipedia) is a collection of limestone stacks off the shore of the Port Campbell National Park, Victoria.
