Great Ocean Road

Victoria's Great Ocean Road is great in every sense of the word and is known for its long, empty beaches and crashing surf. Those who opt to drive down this stretch of Victoria's coast will discover one of the most famous and scenic roads in the world. Surfers will find point break heaven.
And if you're looking for breathtaking seaside vistas at every turn, you've found them.

The Great Ocean Road is holiday central for vacationing Melbournites in December and January, when thousands of visitors swell the local population, booking holiday homes for a laid-back summer season. Travelers from farther afield can visit year-round on a road trip tour from Melbourne or opt for a multi-day excursion to see all that the Victoria region has to offer.

Local towns near the Great Ocean Road come alive in summer, with bustling cafes, boutiques and bars welcoming people from all over. Away from the coast, the surrounding mountains hide national parks filled with bushwalks, rain forests, waterfalls and wildlife.

Practical Info

The coastal road winds for 150 miles (243 km) from Torquay on the Bellarine Peninsula near Geelong, all the way to Warrnambool, not far from the South Australian border. A car or guided tour is essential in these parts, as they provide the best way to see iconic sights like the Twelve Apostles. Buses run from Melbourne and Geelong to the major towns of Torquay, Anglesea, Lorne and Apollo Bay.
