Breathtaking. Amazing scenery, particularly around the Shipwreck Coast and Port Campbell. Didn't get to see anything between Lorne and Apollo Bay but what we saw was superb. I hope to go back at some time in the future and spend more time exploring the area. It's something that everyone should go and see.

It was an amazing Trip. We should have taken the two day trip, but due to time constraint landed up taking a day trip. The Driver was excellent. Very friendly. things that need attention - The bus required a wifi connection as we were in the bus the entire day. Most of the other tourist do provide this. The lunch... More

I rented a Wicked Camper van with a few friends and we did this trip in 3 days. I wish we would have had more time because there are a lot of cool towns to check out. The 12 apostles were beautiful. Lots of good views and we saw quite a few koalas. Reminds me of Highway 101 in California... More

Love the coastal drive, seeing Koalas in the wild was amazing. The grunting sound they make is terrifying especially if you camp in a tent and have no idea what it is! Beautiful scenery, Diverted to the Otway national park and 12 apostles!

This is a part of Victoria that you don't want to miss. Stunning twisty roads that runs close to the ocean and through the rain forests.We took the long route that runs through some rain forests as well. I really loved driving on this road so i never gave my driving seat to my friend lol. We did this as... More

Beautiful drive on the edge of Australia. Start your drive at the sleepy fishing village of Barwon Heads and walk along the well marked Bluff track. Look across to Point Nepean and the Rip then along the coast to Torquay and Point Roadknight. On a clear day you may just see Lorne in the distance. Stop at the villages on... More

This is a stunning part of Victoria and you will get the most out of it if you spend 2 days stopping at all of the beach side suburbs along the way. I personally spent the first day driving from Melbourne city to Apollo Bay, where we spent the night. We then had breakfast down on the beach and was... More
