The Bottle of Milk - Lorne -  Great Ocean Road - My Kiki Cake - Sydney Food Blog - The Menu

The main reason for our trip to Melbourne in April, was to see and experience the Great Ocean Road. Having seen so many beautiful photos, I wanted to capture the vast scenery and tick the road trip off my bucket list. In total, we were in Victoria for four days, spending our first night in the Melbourne CBD, visiting 400 Gradi for lunch and Chin Chin for dinner. The next day we rose early, picked up our Hertz hire car and went via Sorrento (near the Mornington Peninsula) to get the car Ferry across to Queenscliff. From there, we continued on to the Great Ocean Road and stopped at iconic locations such as Bell’s Beach and Lorne, where we grabbed some fabulous burgers for lunch. We stayed the night in the waterfront town of Apollo Bay, and continued on the next morning to the Twelve Apostles to get those typical tourist shots of the remaining Apostles behind us. It was fantastic! We then looped back inland making it back to Melbourne in time for dinner at Hellenic Republic. Our last day was also food filled with breakfast at Silo by Joost, afternoon tea at LuxBite and an early dinner before our flight at 38 Chairs. It was a fun, foodie packed four days, and the perfect escape from Sydney life.

Below is a collection of photos from the first day of the road trip, and I will post part two soon. I definitely recommend placing the Great Ocean Road on your own bucket list, as its beauty is something that should be seen in ones lifetime.

We enjoyed a lunch time pitt stop at The Bottle of Milk in Lorne, which offered us some tasty sustenance for the remaining drive. So far the weather had been very dreary and we hadn’t eaten a proper breakfast so our stomachs were growling. We picked two burgers from the extensive menu, grabbed a booth, and enjoyed the really chic fit-out and utensils.

The next photos are some of my favourite from the day, and were captured as the sun was setting. From memory they were all taken near Airley’s Inlet, which is just before the bends, where the winding road begins that leads to Apollo Bay. It was such a shame that we did the bends when it was dark, as we missed out on seeing this whole section. I guess this means we will have to visit again one day.
