I recently completed the 7 day Great Ocean Walk which was run by RAW Travel. It involved walking the entire length of the track from Apollo Bay to the Twelve Apostles and we walked between eight and twenty five kilometres per day with a rest day in the middle. The terrain is gentle to undulating and it gets more strenuous... More

The Great Ocean Road is surely is a must-do when in Australia. We've seen the great Ulura and the lovely Wine Country (Barossa and McLaren), so the GOR was our next big thing to see before hitting Melbourne. And it doesn't disappoint. We started in the west just after Warrnambool. It's a nice drive from vista point to vista point.... More

Many attractions do not live up to the hype, but that's not the case for the Great Ocean Road. There are no tolls or fees, all you need is a car or minibus. The Great Ocean Road loops in spectacular twists and turns. There aren't quite Twelve Apostles anymore, but they are still worth seeing. Loch Ard Gorge is not... More

We were two friends, we flew into Melbourne and rented a car and took the great ocean road. There are lots of stops along the way, small little authentic towns where you can stop for food, gas, or even sleep. The highlights of the trip is ofcourse the famous twelve appostles. The way is too long, you can go halfway,... More

A once in a lifetime experience doing this day trip. Can't describe just how stunning and amazing the scenery is. Whole coast is lovely but the twelve apostles are a bucket list must see. Great day trip with AAT Kings from Melbourne. Free hotel courtesy pick up bus, very good tour guide, great stops, along with the highlight of the... More

Drove with our friends from Geelong through Torquay to Port Campbell. It’s said the road can be driven in 4 hours but rushing like that would be a shame. Plan on a full day so you can make a number of stops along the way. We got off early in the morning so we could see the kangaroos at Anglesea... More

The Twelve Apostles is spectacular and the best known but the Loch Ard Gorge, London Bridge and the various other gorges and cliffs are equally if not more spectacular and each is different in its own way. Get out and walk the cliffs and enjoy
