Nice drive with many distinct lookouts. Get to see the nature's creation and the change through nature overtime along the coastal region. If not driving, it will not be a must-visit.

Hello Wasim, So sorry I didn't answer your question. I didn't have time when I first read it as I was away with work and I'm afraid I completely forgot to get back to it. I'm sure you've made the drive already. Hope you... More
Comparing Melbourne Tours with Otway Tours of the Great Ocean Road, is one distinctly preferable to the other? Also, we'll be taking the tour in early June with much less daylight than summertime. Will that still work to make it in one day and see everything while still light?

Hi everyone, After our trip to uluru (flying into Adelaide and visiting Kangaroo Island) we would like to drive the Great Ocean Road from Adelaide towards Melbourne before we go to Tasmania. We are 2 people who love nature and hiking, no touristic areas. A nice wine tasting along the way would be nice aswell. Could you please let me know if you have an itinerary to share and/or nice stops. Thank you very much Sandra

No winery in the area ( I believe ) but lots of pubs / bars etc with decent food and of course, wine too... Enjoy the hiking both on the coast and also in land with forest too. Maybe the ideal combination is walk and bus?
