This is the last travel post of my Australia trip. Fhewww finally finished writing it after 2 months plus (a total of 16 posts hehehe).
I felt much better on day 7. Nausea… gone 98%. YippeaiiOOOO
Our breakfast was at Cafe Andiamo in Degraves Street; a cool place which we found yesterday during our car parking adventure in Manchester Lane.
If you want to soak in the Melbourne lifestyle this is the place!
Note: This post has the least photos of all my travelogue posts!!! (kekeke) But it will have me babbling long winded. (hahaha)
The next morning, I woke up and drink some of the water I boiled yesterday night. Ate leftovers from yesterday’s dinner for first breakfast. Not long after I had stomachache and nausea. My sis had the same thing except the water so I knew something must be wrong with the water. More over the water tasted funny when I drank it but choose to just ignored it. Haha (so now kena!)
After checked out, we bought our second breakfast at the restaurant just outside Geelong Riverview Tourist Park; mine is toasted chicken & avocado sandwich AUD5.50. However I could only afford a bite. The wanna-vomit feeling is still there.
Still we proceed to Geelong post office. Sending postcards and letters are a must! Then we head back to Melbourne. Lost our way somehow near Lorimer Street. And I went into Kraft office to ask for direction. Hahaha The directions given were easy to understand but when we come face to face with the road, everything’s different. Having GPS at this stage didn’t help at all. So we just used our 6th sense to navigate the roads. And what do you know? We found our way back to Melbourne!!! Wohoooo
First thing we did once we reached Geelong is to check-in at Geelong Riverview Tourist Park, our accommodation for the night.
Entrance to Geelong Riverview Tourist Park (located by the Barwon River).

A little away from Gibson Step is the turning to Princetown Road (C166). That’s the start of our inland journey home.
After spending about 35 minutes at Lord Ard Gorge, we proceed to Living On The Edge walk/park. There are actually 3 walking themes here; Geology (location of Island Archway before it collapses on 10th June 2009 and the Razorback), The Wreck (where Loch Ard Gorge is located) and Living On The Edge.
This is the signboard that we saw at the start of Living On The Edge walk. Ohh so Thunder Cave is like 550m away? Sap sap sui la (easy)
After biding goodbye to the lovely Port Campbell town we drove to Port Campbell National Park.
Here are some of the awesome views along Great Ocean Road.
I stopped the car in the middle of the road and took this picture. The road was practically ours!
