In my opinion you can't come to Melbourne and not do the Great Ocean Road. This was my second time doing this beautiful run and it didn't disappoint. I took my partner and he loved it too. Plenty of places to stop and admire the view along the way. Also plenty of small towns to stop off in for some... More

Amazing views and a long and beautiful drive along the coast with many small and cute towns along the way where one can stop to see the local shops or to eat at any of the local eateries and cafes.

The Great Ocean Road takes the traveller through Geelong and through the iconic surf coast. Torquay is a summer playground where the waves that roll in are suitable for small children through to professional surfers. You just have to pick your beach. Bell's Beach's annual surfing championships attract surfers from all over the world. Then travel through a number of... More

I experienced the Great Ocean Road as part of a coach tour and it blew me away. The views of the ocean are stunning and there are several look out points as well. The fish and chips at Apollo Bay was also delicious. If I go again, I'll probably hire a car and stay overnight because it can be a... More

We rented a SUV from Melbourne Airport upon arriving in the morning. Then drove through the GREAT OCEAN ROAD (passing Apollo Bay, Twelve Apostles) all the way to Warrnambool. What an amazing car journey seeing all this fabulous coast line on Southern Australia. We stopped as a mandatory at the Great Ocean Road's arch and took photos. The whole journey... More

We stopped at Lorne Information and as a result we had what was a major highlight of our five week stay in Australia. We were advise to turn down towards Cape... More

We are so glad we took the time to drive the Great Ocean Road. We spent the night at Port Campbell. It was an amazing drive with so much to see. We felt we needed so much more time to be able to take in all the beauty. We drove from Melbourne and if we ever go back we would... More
