The Twelve Apostles and the Gibson's Steps are one of their kind. I have never seen something that picturesque before ..... Let me talk about my journey to these places.. Got an amazing Guide/Driver who took us through these magical places and filled us with a lot of information and wits. I had a ball, as I decided to sit next to him, and interacted with him. He was from Germany and moved to Australia and was into deep sea diving and other adventure sports.
Anyway, we drive through the beautiful Great Ocean Road to reach to these points, which was our last destination that day. We had a limited time and to reach to both the points was not easy, moreover, the guide said to everyone, to do The Twelve Apostles as Gibson's Steps (you can see the background, walk all the way, and then go down through the stairs and then the beach) would not be possible as it is windy, rainy plus it is quite far, and steep. I was like in my mind, "Run" .... It was possibly 4-5 kms of running up and down, and I just went for it, touched the water, got more pictures and yes then went to The Twelve Apostle too, and run back to the bus! I was pretty happy with my small moment of accomplishment, and yes, I also made sure I spend my time seeing both!
Great Ocean Road Drive is by far the best road trip I ever imagined, I ever had!!
