After travelling to port Campbell from Geelong on the weekend,I'd forgotten how beautiful our coastline is. There are so many beautiful views and many places along the road so stop and admire them. A must to do and put it on yr bucket list. Victoria is such a beautiful part of this world.

A tour of The Great Ocean Road is a must!! The ocean is amazing, and each photo op was more beautiful than the last. The 12 Apostles are incredible. We also saw koalas and beautiful parrots. Viator has a great option for a whole day tour which we highly recommend.

Regardless of where you live, a visit to the Great Ocean Road is a must. Starting at Warrnambool if you're travelling East, or Torquay if you're headed West. You get to see the power of nature with the 12 Apostles, London Bridge and if you have had the opportunity to go to Flagstaff Hill in Warrnambool, you can see the... More

This is such a pretty spot in Victoria. The roads are good and can be very busy with visitors taking in the beautiful views.

Having moved to Ballarat in mid 2015 the Great Ocean Road was always high on the list of places to visit. We have driven West to East both times we have driven on the road, once from Port Campbell to Torquay and again from Nelson to Warrnambool. The road itself is well maintained and while being narrow at times is... More

We went to GOR during the Xmas break and really enjoyed it. If you are travelling from MEL make sure you take the route LORNE - APOLLO BAY - 12 Apostles. I think the scenic route is mapped well and you will enjoy the drive. Please check the weather before you leave and also look for bushfires in the area.... More

The Great Ocean Road is one of the best ocean drives in the world. If you can, take a car and drive it yourself, but there are several bus tours available if you can't organise your own car. Consider riding a bike along the length of the road if you want an alternate way to experience it. That will allow... More
