Take a drive on the spectacular Great Ocean Road, which winds alongside the wild and windswept Southern Ocean along the coast of Victoria. Home to the world-class surf at Bells Beach and the craggy limestone spires of the 12 Apostles, this diverse and dramatic region is best explored over the course of a few days.
HOW TO GET THERE
The Great Ocean Road begins with a 90-minute drive from Melbourne's city centre. It spans 400 kilometres (249 miles) from the town of Torquay to Nelson, which lies on the border with South Australia.
