Great Ocean Road

Let’s start here: Great Ocean Road is simply un-f*%$ing-believable and absconds with the cake for my favorite coastline. It’s the type of place that moves you, creating jittery excitement coupled with are you seeing what I’m seeing faces of glee among visitors.

To say the beaches on Great Ocean Road are merely pretty almost seems like an insult to me. They’re leagues beyond that, fully embodying words such as grandiose, assertive, and monumental. Rent a car, don a swimsuit, and turn off at every single beach. I loved it enough to sleep in the back of my car in a forest to stay longer (a common theme for me, I’ve learned). Day trip from Melbourne (distance): 1.5-3 hours depending on destination
