As the title says one of the must visits here in Australia. The drive alone is already satisfying with all the scenic views. Once here do bring a coat in case, as it does get fairly windy.

243-kilometres of wonderful views of nature and its forces, and the creation of its forces over millions of years. At one stop, we walked down to the beach, and enjoyed the sound of the ocean waters and wind.

Everyone in Australia needs to do the Ocean Road once in their life. The whole way is stunning and so is all the towns on the way. The best way to do it is bus so you can just relax
