Second last post on our Great Ocean Road adventure, I promise! After the Loch Ard Gorge visit, we followed the signboard and walked towards the Thunder Cave. This was the information board regarding the Thunder Cave. As you can see from the information below, there used to be an arch over the ocean but the continuous force of wind, sea and rain water narrowed the arch until it gave way to what it is today.

This was the picture of Thunder Cave as of 2010. Look at the strong currents from the ocean. It’s no wonder the arch collapsed over time.
Just next to the Thunder Cave was another cave. I initially thought this was the Thunder Cave, for the strong waves that hit the cave gave a resounding boom not unlike the thunder. A very angry and loud sound indeed. You could almost feel that the waves were trying very hard to eat into the cave walls.

From Thunder Cave, there was a path that led inwards, going through a vast green field and ending up with more magnificent views of the ocean.

Even though the waters were rough and the waves were strong, one could not help but be amazed by the crystal clear and turquoise ocean. This was definitely a must-visit view of the Great Ocean Road. Final part will be coming up shortly!
