Great Ocean Road: Lorne

by - 12:30 AM

One of my favorite quick getaway places in Victoria: the chilled-out coastal town of Lorne along the famous Great Ocean Road! I've been on schoolies here, camping and staying at the Great Ocean Road Backpackers hostel. I love this place. It's quiet, it's close to Melbourne (3 hours train and bus ride from Southern Cross) and it's so picturesque. I've been here on my own twice just to get away from the city life of Melbourne. It's the best place to just do some personal reflection, heaps of reading and taking long walks... You can go hiking, exploring the rock pools, picnicking in the forest-like gardens along the beach, swimming, sun bathing, body surfing all in one day!

Welcome to my wayfaring world of stories. I’m a traveling musician and music educator from Melbourne living in Kabul, Afghanistan. Join me on my quest to embrace people of peace in tough places, inspire creative education where none exists, spark conversations that challenge the status quo, and collaborate with like-minded young people to catalyze a movement of peacemaking through acts of compassion and creativity among the young and free. As a nomad at heart, my ‘home’ is wherever I journey with people on the ground and discover life on the frontiers.
