Trip Type:
Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: The great ocean road and the penguin parade.

Liked: The great ocean road is fantastic! I will want to go another time! People and tour guide are friendly and fun loving people!

Disliked: Fast food restaurants a little stress out, cos pace to order food is really fast, and you got to be very clear about the portions that you want to order, especially if you want to order small or kid sized portion of food, because the staff at the counter tend to serve or order the regular or large portion for you, they dont care whether you are a female or male, a small eater or large eater..... But the cafes are real cool, relax, they will make sure u are sitted properly before any orders are taken.
