Photo Guide: 12 Unedited Super Shots Of Australia’s Great Ocean Road

Great Ocean Road

Coastal views

Recently, I was invited to Australia to experience one of the country’s most iconic road trips: The Great Ocean Road. While most people see the road by booking a tour, I explored it by doing it as an actual road trip, rental car and all. Beginning in Torquay and ending in Warrnambool, the trip was full of scenic views, wildlife experiences and adventurous detours. Below are some of my favorite unedited shots from the trip, all taken with a Olympus Tough TG-320 and the iPhone 4s.

    Beautiful photos! On my visit to Melbourne 1,5 yrs ago I only made it as far as Lorne, but now that I’m gonna be living in Melbourne the upcoming months I’m super excited about going all the way to the apostles and hopefully doing a bit of camping on the way;)

      Jealous 🙂 Definitely look into doing Bothfeet. If you like the outdoors and great artisanal food and wine it’s amazing.
