Great Ocean Road
One of the world’s greatest drives, the Great Ocean Road winds its way for more than 200 kilometres alongside jaw-dropping sheer cliffs buffeted by the Southern Ocean.
Many shipwrecks dot this wild Victorian coastline, telling dramatic tales of Australia’s early settlers trying to start a new life.
Discover something new around every turn of this dramatic drive
Gaze in awe at the big waves of world-famous Bell’s Beach near Torquay, then have a surfing lesson with the experts. Take a helicopter flight over the giant Twelve Apostles; or visit them from the shore in the Port Campbell National Park. Swing a club at the Anglesea Golf Club, where kangaroos casually graze. At the Cape Otway Light Station, the oldest on the Australian mainland, you can spend the night in the restored light-keeper’s cottage. Wind down your car windows and breathe in the perfume of gum trees and fresh air, and plan on regular stops to photograph the vista.
Venture through the Great Otway National Park to Cape Otway and Warrnambool, the southernmost point of the Great Ocean Road. See some of Victoria's most remote and beautiful rainforest, coastal scenery. Visit wild Johanna Beach where towering cliffs frame the pristine sandy beach; or the isolated and incredibly beautiful Blanket Bay.
On the Great Ocean Road nature puts on a show at every turn.
