Journey by Dawn

Camping at the 12 Apostles: best way to see this natural wonder!

Last week I decided to rent a car and head for a drive to the 12 Apostles for an overnight camping trip. Never mind I went alone, in fact I really made the most of it! Taking the inland route the drive was about 3 hours – quite straight in fact comparing to the intense windy Great Ocean Road. Though toward the end you do get to drive on part of the Great Ocean Road as well.

After reading a lot of online reviews and options, I decided to camp at the Princeton Campgounds ( It was 15$ for me and my car and I found a perfect spot under a gum tree. There were hot showers but with close to 40C that day I settled for 2 cold ones. And oh… let’s not forget the stars! It was a bit hard to breathe at night – very stuffy in the tent, despite the wind outside. I opened my tent for some air and was amazed by the stars! Sadly my photography skills are still new and the wind was constantly moving the camera so I didn’t get any good shots. But here is one of the silver sunset and the golden sunrise!
