1-day drive along Great Ocean Road?

I've read some previous posts, so I know that it's generally not recommended... but we really don't have a choice - we'll be in Melbourne 4 days, only 1 day free. So... a couple of questions:

- Worth it, or skip it?

- If we do go... how far should we push it before turning around?

- Return along the same road, or another alternate?

O.K., that was more than a couple... thx.

I think we can safely say the OP has been and gone.

Just a heads up that this thread was originally posted in January.

Samantha D your linked website reads "Companies we have Partnered with, Companies we have worked with or are working with (click on the logo to be taken to their website) - Point Helicopters" Exactly what sort of affiliation is it?

And for everyone else, yes, it's an ⇛ ⇛ ⇛ ⇛ OLD THREAD ⇚ ⇚ ⇚ ⇚

Samantha D u might like to take note of the TA forum guideline:

"You cannot:

•Link to strictly commercial websites or a blog affiliated with or promoting any one property or business.

•Include links, contact information, or recommendations for a business with which you are affiliated, even if your business or property seems to be an ideal fit for a traveler's needs"

I agree a day tour would be much better than such a long drive.

We , a group of four, are reaching Melbourne at 6 A.M. Can we take the Great Ocean Road & twelve apostle tour the same day by conducted tours or hired taxis. We expect to be ready by 10 AM /11. AM . We are leaving Melbourne next day late evening at 9.15 PM. .

May we hire a cab from the airport itself so that it can take us from airport to place of stay and then to GOR/ Twelve Apostles and back to the place of stay. How much it should cost?

Please advise
