I spent this year’s Labor’s day holiday at Tanjung Sepat. This impromptu trip was decided on the day itself after coming back from my maiden gym workout. First stop was at Asam Batu Laut Restaurant for late lunch. I’ve been to this eatery back in 2013 and found the seafood to be fresh and delicious. So we came back for more!
Clockwise from left: salted mantis prawn, asam steamed snapper fish, marmite baby octopus and sizzling hot plate oyster. Not in photo is a plate of dragon vegetables.

Great Ocean Road Day Self-Drive 4: Pee Story, Port Campbell National Park & Trouble Finding Twelve Apostles
So okay, we knew we had made a mistake once we saw ‘Port Campbell’ sign because that’s the town after Twelve Apostle. Very quickly we U-turned. We guessed the ‘Port Campbell National Park’ or ‘Port Campbell Visitor Center’ (couldn’t remember which one because everything was a blur haha) sign we saw earlier is the place because there are no other buildings or signs pointing to Twelve Apostles.
Tsk tsk because I do not want to repeat the same ‘temple sick’ scenario at Siem Reap… in this case ‘apostles sick’ scenario, I didn’t find out any information about Twelve Apostles. Now served us right. LOL
Even when we turned into the car park, we are still in a blur. We asked tourist whether this is the place to view Twelve Apostles. Even though they said yes, we still ask another group just to confirm it. That was how clueless we were. Kekeke
We reached Twelve Apostles car park at 6.06pm.
The long 5 minutes walk to Twelve Apostles.
Can you see the bridge railing in the middle of this photo? That’s the Great Ocean Road and this walkway is an underpass. Now we get it. That’s how we can go to the other side of the road… to the open ocean… to Twelve Apostles!!!
