Driving along the coastline from Sydney to Melbourne and then from Melbourne to Warrnambool is one of the most spectacular things we have done. The climate changes, the flora changes. We stayed in lots of different places from houses, apartments, B&B's, motels and hotels. People are really friendly and helpful and the nature is so amazingly beautiful!

I was encouraged by a Friend in Melbourne to visit the GOR especially the Twelve Apostles. Of course, there isn't 12 anymore and such impermanence reminded that I should seize this opportunity to travel along GOR and visit the natural wonders there. Indeed we haven't regrets as the GOR was the highlight of our trip and we love each "wind... More

My wife, 14 yr old son and I did the road trip from Port Campbell along the B100 highway (Great Ocean Road) heading east to Torquay where it ends. We did the turnoff (C166) to go to Apostles Whey Cheese tasting which was worth it. On the same road is Gorge Chocalates (not worth it, but you can stop because... More

Beautiful views of the ocean, a long day for sure but well worth the time. We saw multiple koalas at the Kennet River area and got some good video. Breathtaking vistas. Saw the 12 Apostles and the views there did not disappoint. Great trip!

The reason as to why I would recommend AAT Kings is simply because... More

We were able to see the Great Ocean Road in both some rain and sun and it is a spectacular drive. We saw koalas in the trees at Kennet River, kangaroos at the Anglesea golf course and of course the 12 Apostles - which is one of the most stunning vistas in the world. We left Melbourne at 9:00am and... More
