CDP National Theme Day - Australia Day

These are a few photographs taken on our trip to Australia in 2010 to visit our family living to the South West of Melbourne. They are celebrating Australia Day to the full and we are looking back on a super visit with them.


As part of our trip we travelled down The Great Ocean Road.  These photos were taken with a small basic camera but they will give you an idea of the coastline.  If ever you visit Melbourne, be sure to take in The Great Ocean Road to see sights like these.












City Daily Photo is celebrating the National Day of Australia. CDP bloggers have been invited to share photos of an Australian theme. For worldwide contributions, please follow the CDP Link - Australia Day.

Oh my gosh, it's gorgeous! I for one am very happy you found these:) That drive looks almost dream-like, how wonderful you were able to spend time with family there, and in such surroundings!

Such wild and beautiful coastline!
I see next visit I will have to try to see something outside of New South Wales.

Australia and New Zealand are on our bucket list!!!

Lauren, to travel the Great Ocean Road is a marvellous recommendation. It encompasses so much of what is wonderful in the natural world. These outbreaks used to be known as 'The Twelve Apostles', however, they seem to be crumblind away year in, year out.

Thank you for your contribution to our first National Day on the portal. As a non-Australian, your participation is much appreciated.

Great post..
We have only seen the GOR once and it too was in 2010 and I recommend that any one coming to Australia ensure they put this on top of their list to visit. Such a beautiful region.
Oh and you have to visit Sydney :)

Well this has been fun. Glad I got to share these photos with you all.

Thank you Stefan, Wilf, Petrea, Joan and Jim and Lulu!

Dina - You won't be disappointed. Nice motels along the way so you can make a trip of it.

Chieftess - I wish we could have visited NZ when were in Oz.

Julie - The Twelve Apostles were spectacular, what is left that is :).

Jo - We have visited Sydney. One of my favorite cities. I wonder if we passed each other on the GOR in 2010...ha ha! Who knows.
