Great Ocean Road

The Great Ocean Road winds along the south-west coastline of Victoria, from Torquay to Warrnambool, and is probably the best known drive holiday route in Australia.

It’s a journey to take slowly, with a plethora of swimming and surfing beaches, quaint seaside towns, breathtaking clifftop views and delightful forest walks to take in.

One of the most beautiful sections runs alongside the Otway Range from Torquay to Apollo Bay, and it’s here that the Great Ocean road heads inland to the 12 Apostles. For those after a unique coastal experience the Great Ocean Walk starts in Apollo Bay and finishes at the 12 Apostles

Torquay and Apollo Bay both make excellent bases for a Great Ocean Road holiday, offering quality accommodation, a fantastic array of quality restaurants and range of inspiring activities.

A typical day in the Otways includes Surfing, Sea kayaking, Mountain Bike or Horse Riding in the morning, walking the Great Ocean Walk or to one of the many waterfalls in the afternoon and then a spot of Fishing and a chance to see Platypus in the evening. Or maybe you are after a massage a fantastic meal and kicking back at the beach.
