Easter-Anzac day weekend....So now comes winter

The Easter weekend was a long weekend here,from Friday to Wednesday.Easter holidays were followed by the Anzac Day holiday hence the long weekend.Anzac day marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War. With this being the last long weekend before winter starts we decided to make the most of it.We went for a lot of long drives in and around melbourne and the weather was just perfect.We were able to visit "Dandenong ranges national Park" just east of melbourne  and see the fall colors.

Next we went to the " Great Ocean Road" it is one of the most beautiful scenic drives along the ocean in  the world.There are lots of places along this road where you can stop and enjoy the vastness and the different colors of the ocean.But the best were the "12 Apostles",these are huge limestone rock formations in the ocean and they really form a panoramic view.It was one really breathtaking experience and as someone said it is like heaven on earth.
