Hi there,

My cousin and I will be visiting Melbourne on the 21st of September and would love to head to the GOR with some friendly company! We could do this anytime between the 22nd and 25th of September as we leave on the 26th. Fuel cost, car rental and what not will be split. I drive, she doesn't, so you've got one driver already! :)

We're really easy going, so let us know if you're interested.

Hi Kristine,
Are you still planning to check out the Great Ocean Road? Are you looking to go all the way to Adelaide or just see a few sights and then head back to Melbourne? I'd love to hear more details if you're still going!

Hi Kristine,

what is a current plan with trip to GOR? I'm at the moment in Victoria for work, planing to finish everything asap and go down to GOR around the time you're planing to drive. The thing is that I would join you from Portland or Warnambool to direction of Melbourne... I don't know if it fits you...

Hi Kristine,

I'll know when exactly will I be able to meet you up on Wednesday. Is that soon enough for you? I'm here for work, and need to see how much I can speed it up and start a trip. By then we could maybe also plan the place where to meet? Do you know how much money will it cost for the car? I might drive as well. So we can share and not get exhousted by driving.

Looking forward to this!

Hi Silvijia,

That's fine,do let us know by Wednesday:) So mentioned that we will meet you at Portland or Warnambloo,and then what we could do is to do a scenic drive.Is there anything in particular along GOR that you are keen on visiting? We're not sure of the car rates,we will probably settle that when we get to Melbourne and ask around for a good rental company.

SO that plan is that we can drive from melbourne through the non scenic drives and then pick you up(preferably in the morning,say 9-10) and then go through the scenic drive pathways and reach Melbourne by evening? would you be cool with that?

Let us know :)

Hi Kristine,

So I'll be free on 25th for sure and could meet you on the way. The plan sounds good. Please let me know in next days prices and meeting point and I'll be there :) I suggested Portland or Warnambloo, and honestly still haven't decided which one of those, so you pick the place which suits you better.

See you next week. Looking forward to our trip :)

Hi Kristine,

I'd be interested in joining the trip along GOR if there is still room. I can also drive if needed! Have you got any plans confirmed yet? I'll be busy with work on the 24th but I'm free on the 25th.
