We were there in the... More

Stunning coastline, with well sign-posted lookout points and facilities. However our enjoyment was serously curtailed by massive swarms of flys which assaulted us everytime we got out of the car. Particularly bad at Twelve Appostles. Some visitors had had enough warning to organise face nets, but it was a complete suprise to us. A quick web search suugests there's a... More

This would be a "must see" if you are visiting Australia or if you live here - it is absolutely spectacular. Travelling by your own private motor vehicle from Warrnambool to Melbourne or visa versa you have the stunning views out of your window most of the way. Stopping at all of the tourist points you will be in absolute... More

I went to this place with 10 friends. We rent a car and did a road trip. We saw many interesting views along the journey. I did really love this journey.

Seeing is believing , the power of nature and formation of rocks in the sea is breathtaking and with so many look out points its just stunning and marvellous . The limestone stacks known as the 12 Apostles is a must see from a hill top .

Spectacular and dramatic cliffs, island rocks and ocean-carved sandstone on a beautiful sunny day. Still as beautiful and amazing as our last visit 20 years ago. We pulled into each sight, all spectacular in their own right, including the 12 apostles, loch ard gorge, London bridge, the grotto, Gibson' steps, bay of islands. We left Gibson's steps til later in... More

We booked our Great Ocean Rd Tour through greatoceanoadmelbournetours.com.au. Which must be an agent for Wildlife Tours. We had Rob as our driver who was very informative with local knowledge. Our first stop of the day was at Urquhart Bluff where we had morning tea. Once back on the bus, we stopped at the Memorial Arch, a great place for... More

Great place to visit and walk along the boardwalk at sunset. Best to go early or later in the day to miss the bus crowds.
