Walk the bush trails in Gherang

Story by Allie Delury

Day 1 – Walk the bush trails in Gherang

We checked in in the afternoon, and immediately wanted to explore the quaint farm land that the house resides on. There is privacy in every direction and a serenity that seems to invite itself to our front door… serenity must be the name of several of the sheep on the farm land, because they also paid us a visit. While walking the property we found a winding bush trail crowded with kangaroo and wallaroo but not with people! This Tiny Away adventure is a welcome break from the beeps, whistles, and buzzes of technology and distraction leaving my fiancé and me with the peace and time to focus on each other and ourselves. After stretching our legs on the hike, we returned to the house for a shower and to cook our dinner on the full stove top. I didn’t look at my phone once. As the sun went down the fire pit lit up. It was exactly what we needed to cap off a truly wonderful first day. This house had everything we needed. With a glass of wine and a couple fresh books we settled into the loft bed with the fire in the wood stove fireplace’s glowing embers instead of our phones or television.

 

Day 2 – Visit Otway National Park, Erskine Falls, Lorne Esplanade, and drive the Great Ocean Road

Our second day started with a cup of coffee and some eggs and bacon, and we planned our outing to Otway National Park to see Erskine Falls. On the way we passed adventure climbing and ropes courses. We were also able to catch glimpses of the beach, which taunted us. Erskine Falls’ majesty is something to be seen firsthand. There are two viewing platforms. One near the top of the falls, but the true beauty is at the bottom. We followed the steps down to the platform which gave us a decent perspective, but blazing our own trail has always been something we’re comfortable with so we hopped the rocks for a closer look to where we could feel the rush of wind and mist from the falls. Couldn’t help but steal a kiss from Allie in this moment. After the falls we made our way to the coastal town of Lorne, just down the street. We rested on the beach and caught some sun and had a classic fish and chips dinner, with an audience of cockatoos at one of the many restaurants on the esplanade. From Lorne we took the scenic Great Ocean Road all the way home. We made our way back to our tiny abode and nestled in after a day well spent.
