Struggling for new things to do these school holidays? We have got you covered, no matter what the age of your little ones are.
Let's go for a drive down the coast along the Great Ocean Road, stopping at the waterfalls, the Apostles and enjoying the beautiful views along the way.
But before you stop and see any of this, stop off at Bellbrae, located at the start of this long costal road, about 30 minutes from Geelong. This small town has become the newest hit, all thanks to the Great Ocean Road Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery or GORCI.
You will be able to spend all day here... trust me once you are there its hard to leave!
Driving up, you will feel like you are in a whole new world. Straight off the busy road and into a secluded sanctuary. The area has been beautifully done, surrounded by trees and the carpark and outer gardens filled with flora.
Once you reach the building you are instantly shown some of the creations GORCI has in store for you. Their MASSIVE, and I mean MASSIVE, ice creams and gelato. Asking for a single scoop cone, you really get an icecream the size of your kids head! You are 100% getting your moneys worth. The flavours here are divine. There are some classics like strawberry or choc chip, or dive head first into flavours like honeycomb, rum and raison or my favourite snickers. Get that double scoop if you are game enough.
After walking past the ice-cream kiosk, you walk up through the revolving door and into what can only be described as the modern day Wonka Factory.
There is chocolate EVERYWHERE.
You can watch the chocolate being created, or just simply wander through the chocolaterie and peruse the stands and walls of chocolate. There is every type of chocolate you can wish for; nougat, lolly snakes, rocky road... chocolate in and on anything!
It is the most purest chocolate, you can't leave here without buying something. Get in before the Easter bunny buys the building out.
Don't worry if you are overwhelmed by it all, have a seat at their restaurant for a coffee, and lunch. Opt for something light like the salad (so you can fill up on some more chocolate).
On you way out don't forget to take a free scoop of white, milk or dark chocolate for the road trip.
Continue on following the Great Ocean Road to discover something new for yourself! Every time I travel along the picturesque road, I notice something new for myself.
