To me, this must be the most beautiful spot in Australia. The rugged coastline and the superb weather when I visited. It was a long ride from Melbourne city though, so you have to keep yourself occupied.

Once you are in Melbourne you have to go to Great Ocean Road tour to visit the best oceanic views and most popular natural attractions in Victoria including native animals and birds. Twelve Apostles are the must tourist destination.

We spent 4 days travelling down the Great Ocean Road seeing the magnificent views and visiting amazing places along the way. My favourite view was the 12 apostles I could have stayed there all day. My only regret is that I didn't take the helicopter ride ($140 for 15 minutes) it was very windy that day so we decided not... More

I have yet to encounter anyone, from Australia or overseas, who was not impressed with the Great Ocean Road. The road twists and turns along the Southern Ocean shore, and the views are magnificent, Waves pound the shore and along the way you will encounter the 12 Apostles (what's left of them), among other sights., Don't miss the Loch Ard...

Our drive along the full length of the GOR (from West to East) over several days just about defies description. There is so much to see, with lots of well-marked stopping points from where you can either just look in awe or snap some amazing pictures. Yes there are many other people doing much the same as you, so some... More
