Don't do a bus trip , grab a car and take an amazing drive up this stunning part of the world. We did all the way to the magnificent 12 apostles and London Bridge with lots of time at each, at our own leisure and all in a day! It is so worth doing as the scenery and beaches are... More

Less than two hours drive from Melbourne is the start of the Great Ocean Rd. A coastal drive that is just breath taking. We only had two and a half days, and we thought we might be able at least see the 12 Apostles, but the road is less than 300km so it turned out 2.5 days was ample time... More

Drove for nearly 3-4hours but it is definitely worth it. The view is spectacular. You can stop by at the other main spot on the way:)

We had the pleasure of showing this part of Victoria to our Perth friends, we were towing so were happy to find that at each stop longer vehicles had been catered for as regards parking. There are many places to pull off the road and enjoy the view. Access to The twelve Apostles (now 10 I think) has been updated... More

The Great Ocean Road is a must see for all visiting the south east of Australia. Sunsets, sunrises, mid day visas are all spectacular. Copter ride over the Apostles is well worth the money too. Photographer's paradise!

There are a number of ocean road drives around the world - Italy, California - for example. This one is spectacular and the scenery is beautiful. As well, it is a well constructed raod and driving is not difficult but requires concentration!
