|Split Point Lighthouse|
As we head back east toward Melbourne on the Great Ocean Road we are discussing how the road is divided into 3 distinct segments, plus the low beaches between Geelong and Split Point Lighthouse. The literature suggests the GOR starts in Torquay.
|How Split Point got it's name|
From Lorne to Apollo Bay you experience generally high cliff views and winding road as pictured in our first segment. Then from Apollo Bay the road enters Otway National Park and is mostly forested lands a ways away from the ocean.
Then beginning with Castle Cove past Port Campbell to the London bridge lookout approx.. 26 kms. you see the distinctive cliffs and beaches that make this area unique.
As we head back today toward Melbourne we stop at the Split Pt. Lighthouse since it was in the mist and rain on Sunday on our drive out. Today the sun is out and so are the novice paddle boarders
taking their lessons in the estuary
behind the beach. On our way up to the Lighthouse we spot a white Cockatoo
