This is the best idea on the part of our Aussie friend to drive us through the Ocean road. What a beautiful scenic view of the Southern Ocean. It was very cold, windy even with few jumpers we were feeling cold. But it was breathtaking view of the ocean.

This was truly amazing scenery. There are a lot of places to stop along The Great Ocean Rd and this is one you will want to stop at.

These lookout points are far less crowded than those east of Port Campbell, and the rocks are just as amazing. Well worth a visit at any time of the year. We were able to take photographs at our leisure and watch the waves' incessant attack on these magnificent structures, without any pressure to move along.

Most gorgeous colours, appearing within the ocean and the rock faces. Complimenting each other very well, beautiful greenery everywhere too

We went on a cruise from the Bay of Islands to the "Hole in the Rock". It was a lovely tour. On the way there we saw pod of dolphins. There really was a hole in a rock which we were able to cruise through because the condition of the ocean was conducive to allowing boats to travel through it... More

Liked this stop the best as it is much less crowded than the 12 apostles and the views are equally stunning. No need to jostle for a place to take a decent picture. Take in the fantastic view at your own time and space here! Do try to drop by here during your visit to the 12 apostles, definitely worth... More

This gem is worthy of stopping going there and going back as we did travelling from Warnambool. Not as famous as some other stops but to my mind the best. Teriffic scenery and variety. And the best bit? No crowds.

Well I booked 2 weeks for our English friends and I to do the Great Ocean Road, people kept telling me they did it in a day. I was pleased we did spend 2 weeks to drive to Adelaide, this is a magical drive, we loved it all, the weather was great, we saw koalas in the wild and much,... More
