“Campa” + Me = GLEE, The Great Ocean Road Part II

Hello again, mates.  “Good on ya” for checking in with me and our adventures in Australia!

What a GREAT time on The GREAT Ocean Road

We are having eight glorious days along The Great Ocean Road. This road was built by hundreds of men as a living Memorial to the Victorians of World War I.

One campsite along The Road had Erskine Falls, a beautiful waterfall with a hike — it was awesome!

We met a very nice Australian family at the Erkine Falls campsite and we enjoyed the hike and falls together the next morning.

We are meeting fantastic people from all over the world!

They have three girls and they were on an 8-week holiday in their “campa” all around Australia.

We had fun at Erskine Falls and a park together.

The “zip line” is called a “flying fox” in Australia

All along The Great Ocean Road, you can see spectacular sculptures formed by Mother Nature from limestone hundreds of years ago, such as, the 12 Apostles and the London bridge.  I hope you enjoy the scenery I am sharing with you:

Can you guess why this is called “The London Bridge?”

We liked the 12 Apostles so much that we went back for a second time when it was lighter.

At one stop there was this really cool sand dune slide, and an incredible view of Block Island.

Okay, why is it called block island?

Roll out of bed and have a wonderful breakfast

Chef Mommy continued cooking in the campa and on the Australian-style “barbies”  in the campgrounds.

And I continued eating in the loft of the campa!   Breakfast in bed is the best!

Here is a shout out from my campa to my classmates at Two Rivers with Ollie the River Otter; and, Grandma Marcia with Hedwig, the Owl!

One evening, while in Warnambool, Australia, we went to an incredible place, called Tower Hill Reserve.  There were animals everywhere!

We met a family from Boston who were also on a long international trip.

Once again, we saw tons of kangaroos, emus, and wallabies in the wild.  By the way, emus’ poops look like cow patties!

Another campsite had fun activities like minigolf and huge bouncy pillow to enjoy.

More jumpin’ kangaroos!

Well that’s it for today. Look for more posts from your Junior Worldtrek Reporter – the next place we head to in the “Campa,” is the great city of Sydney, Australia!

I loved the parrots so much that we went back to feed them again.

One thought on ““Campa” + Me = GLEE, The Great Ocean Road Part II

  1. It’s funny how Boston seems practically next door when you’re on the other side of the world, huh? Your fellow students are all abuzz because the photo of the 12 Apostles is nearly identical to the one in our science book! It is part of the chapter on weathering…why do you think it is a good example of weathering?
