Melbourne to Torquay

By Cubie - December 18, 2010

It was a 3D3N trip - Friday to Sunday night, departed from Melbourne on Monday evening. Despite it was a fairly short trip, I wanted to go to the Great Ocean Road and my travel companion had very kindly agreed to driving, despite the long drive. The plan was to break the journey, making a pit stop in Torquay. So, our overnight stay was a night in Alto on Bourke, followed by Crowne Plaza Torquay, then back to Alto on Bourke.

Breakfast on Saturday morning was with one of my old friend, near South Melbourne Market. Ah, good old Melbourne with the funny hook turn. Grin, the first time I saw it, I thought someone was hogging in the middle of a crossroad! :P

These were actually our second breakfast. We were too hungry earlier, and had a bite near the hotel prior to having these. And no, despite glutton, I didnt have both.

We left for Torquay probably slightly after noon. Despite the pit stop at Torquay, the second half of the drive was actually longer as Torquay is actually nearer to Melbourne although the Great Ocean Road starts in Torquay.

Courtesy of my travel companion, we had a good night stay in Crowne Plaze Torquay. It was a really nice big room, complete with a bar kitchen and spacious balcony.

Unfortunately, the weather forecast that week showed that it would rain, it started pouring that Saturday night. Oh well, it's Melbourne anyway - it's said that you can experience 4 seasons in a day in Melbourne. :P

Dinner in Torquay was in a chinese restaurant. We seem to hit chinese restaurant on our weekend getaway. I started to take picture of the food when it arrived but somehow it fall off, probably I was too hungry then :P

Side note: Thank you for everything...
