Christmas Trip – part1 – Journey to Robe, South Australia

This Christmas break we decided to have a 5 day trip to few cities along the south of Australia, including Mount Gambier, Warrnambool, Lorne and so on. We went through the great ocean road and we visited many beautiful places. Here I like to share some of these places with you. Hope you have a chance to visit them one day.

We started on Sunday early morning (25/12/2016) at around 6:30am from Adelaide, taking the Princes Highway. The Prices Highway was very beautiful with all the farms along the way. The Big Lobster was one of the attractions along this route.

The thought of taking helishots from the beautiful scenes along the Great Ocean Road had motivated me to purchase a DJI Phantom 3 drone, specially after finding out that there is a good discount. I took every chance to fly the drone in the open space and take wonderful shots. I was so excited!!

We had our breakfast near the beautiful Lake Albert, and I took my drone for a spin 🙂


The Obelisk in Robe

Our next destination was the city of Robe, where we had the lunch. First we visited the Obelisk, Built on Cape Dombey, this shipping marker was used to navigate the entrance to Guichen Bay. Built around 1855, the alternating white and red bands helped guide mariners to shore & with a height of approx 12 metres can be seen about 20 ks out to sea.

Lunch at the Robe Beach

We had our lunch near the Robe beach. It’s got one of the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen. The water is so clean and the trees are very beautiful.


The Road was so beautiful.
