Namaste!

  • Great Ocean Road. Great Ocean Road. Did I say Great Ocean Road??

more of the 12 Apostles


Caves at the Loch Ard

  • ICE BAR! It’s a bar made out of ice! To keep the seats, tables, shot glasses, and cups from melting, the temperature in the Ice Bar is -8 degrees Celsius or 17.6 degrees Farenheit. (Don’t worry, entrance fee includes a giant parka, gloves and UGGS to wear while inside)

Ice Bar!

  • Skydeck! Tallest public vantage point in the southern hemisphere at approximately 300 meters or 975 feet.

Falling out of the sky deck! (not really mom don’t worry)


Eureka Skydeck!

  • Random awesome architecture!
