The Great Ocean Road is often described as one of the world's most scenic drives, a rambling 234 kilometer stretch that winds its way from just outside Melbourne through to Warrnambool.
We decided to tackle almost all of it, spending two days slowly twisting and turning ourselves along the coast, stopping frequently to check out some pretty incredible surf breaks, munch down sandwiches in tiny seaside towns, and wander amongst the Twelve Apostles, amazing limestone stack formations jutting from the water only a short distance out to sea.
Our first night on the road we stayed in the sweetest cottage in Lorne. Built in the 1800s and nestled in the woods just outside town, it had a great little fireplace, a wonderful old-style kitchen, creaky wood floors and a whole lot of character. We rather fell in love with it, and left wishing there was only some way we could pick it up, take it with us, and plunk it down wherever it is we next decide to call home.
