A must see if you are in Victoria. We went there on a sunny day and we stopped at every place, have a nice lunch an dinner, saw beaches and other attractions. ...take your time! And beware of the road holes, they're massive! Every lookout is worth the stop, so much things to see and learn!

Driving along the Great Ocean road was an exciting and amazing experience. even though the route from Geelong to Port Campbell might only take 2-3 hours driving, but it took more than 6 hours for me. many attractions along the Great Ocean Road, such as the Lighthouses, the Great Ocean Road Arch, Apollo bay, Lorne, Cape Otway Light house (oldest...

Beautiful drive! Totally worth to rent a car. We didn't rush things so we drove it in 6 days which was a very good idea, so we stopped at every little city, have a nice lunch an dinner, saw beautiful beaches and other attractions. ...take your time!

I took a bus trip from Melbourne. The trip was very long - full day with too much sitting. If I were to do it again (and I would), I would rent a car and stay along the way. I missed some additional spectacular view, I was told. The views were spectacular. The road certainly lives up to its claim... More

We have been to the Great Ocean Road many times over the years. It is a fantastic drive - amazing views of the ocean and the cliffs, it's enough just to drive from end to end even if you don't have time to stop and explore. If you do have time though, there are so many places to investigate further,... More

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.
