Otway Herbs Nursery and Cottage Gardens

Hi all,

On our last day in Apollo Bay, we visited Otway Herbs Nursery and Cottage Gardens. A lovely garden nestled at the top of quite a large mountain. This is their private home and backyard. We had a lovely chat with one of the owners, and purchased some nice plants.

The gardens can be a little steep, so you need good mobility! Very lovely though. I found some insects to photograph too, so was extra special 🙂

Aireys Inlet

Hi all,

On our way home from Apollo Bay we stopped by Aireys Inlet to view the Lighthouse. Called the Split Point Lighthouse, it was used in the Australian kids TV show Round the Twist. It was not open when we went past, so I captured some photos from the outside.

Hopetoun Falls

Hi all,

I love waterfalls. I find them very relaxing. Whilst staying in Apollo Bay we went and looked at some waterfalls. This is the first one, Hopetoun Falls. It was my first time at this waterfall, and it is beautiful.

The walk down has a lot of stairs, but is worth it as you get to go right down to the base. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

12 Apostles Great Ocean Road

Hi all,

Recently I spent a few days in Apollo Bay. Whilst there we visited the 12 Apostles, and some of the other sight seeing spots along the Great Ocean Road. It was a lovely day for photography, the sun bringing out the beautiful golden hues of the rocks. I hope you enjoy.

Ferns in the rainforest

Hi all,

Whilst in Apollo Bay we visited Maits Rest. This is a gorgeous rainforest walk. We were there quite late in the afternoon so it was a bit dark for photography. I was able to get these photos of some tree ferns being backlit by the sun. I was really happy with the effect 🙂

Sunset walk along Apollo Bay beach

Hi all,

Last week I spent a few days in Apollo Bay, on The Great Ocean Road. Such a beautiful and relaxing location.

I’m not normally a morning person, but our first morning in Apollo Bay we were up early so decided to go for a walk along to the beach and watch the sunrise. It was quite cloudy and there wasn’t much sunrise to be seen to start with, thankfully we did get a peak right at the end. There was drizzle too and the clouds gave a rather dramatic backdrop, so all in all a stunning sunrise!
