Continue from my previous post, our next destination is Port Campbell National Park.
Most of the tourists will take Great Ocean Road (From Geelong -> Torquay -> Anglesea -> Lorne -> Apollo Bay) to reach Port Campbell National Park. You will see great ocean view along this road. [Picture Source]

But, we didnt take this road due to the bendy road curling around the coast line. We worried the kids will feel dizzy. [Picture Source]
So, we skipped Great Ocean Road and travel via Geelong Highway. It took approximately 2.5 hours to travel 190km from Melbourne to Apollo Bay. If not mistaken, the route we used was from Geelong -> Winchelsea -> Colac -> Apollo Bay. You can refer to the map below for clearer picture. Our destination were Port Campbell National Park & Twelve Apostles which has highlighted with blue color.
Hehe… Let’s start our journey.
After 2 hours journey, all of us were looking for toilet! We stopped by here. The view here not bad right?

After that, we continued our journey.
Along the way, we passed by alot farmlands. We saw alot animals such as goats, sheep, horses and cows in the fields. We stopped by here while we saw hundreds of cows in this field!
We have limited time, so, we just stopped by a while to take photo.
It was nice to drive along this long road.
We continued our journey again. Do you see something on the road?It was not leaking oil from car, not water..But what’s that???
Reached Port Campbell National Park…
The Port Campbell National Park is a protected national park in Victoria, Australia, 190 kilometres south-west of Melbourne; featuring an array of sheer cliffs overlooking offshore islets, rock stacks, gorges, arches, and blow-holes.[1] As part of the Shipwreck Coast,[2] it hosts several tourist attractions; including The Twelve Apostles, the London Arch (formerly London Bridge), Loch Ard Gorge, the Gibson Steps, and The Grotto.

We are so excited because of this beautiful view. I love this view the most but too bad our time at here was just short.

One thing to highlight to you. If you plan to visit Port Cambell National Park. Remember to start your journey as earlier as you can. So that you will have enough time to cover whole park. Port Cambell National Park opens from 10am to 5:30pm. We only have 1 ~ 2 hours here. Thus, we missed alot tourist attractions such as the London Arch (formerly London Bridge), Loch Ard Gorge, Gibson Steps, The Grotto. All the places here has a nice view!

Around 5pm, we have to go back because we need another 2 hours drive back to Geelong. We will have our dinner here.

Chicken Mushroom (AUD21.50)

Overall the food here was nice! Our totall bill is around 190AUD for 14 peoples. This morning our breakfast for 7 persons also cost 60AUD already. So the price at Hog’s Breathe Cafe consider reasonable.
