Discover the breath-taking coastline
of the Great Ocean Road of south-west Victoria. Travel one
of the world's most scenic roads
through an extended area that
includes the world-famous
Apostles, the Otways rainforest,
Bells Beach, on the Surf Coast, and
the Great Ocean Road itself.
Driving the Great Ocean Road experience resort towns like
Torquay, Lorne and Apollo Bay, the
coastal cities of Geelong and
Warrnambool, and the historic
villages of Queenscliff, Port
Campbell, Port Fairy and Portland.
Starting 100km south west of
Great Ocean Road works its way along the
stunning coastline of Victoria's south-west.
Recognised as one of the world's most scenic
drives, the Great Ocean Road stretches for
over 300 kilometres, from Torquay, just
south of Geelong, to Warrnambool. For most
of the distance the road hugs the coastline.
Torquay is a popular
surfing spot and the
Great Ocean Road leads past a collection of surfing and
swimming beaches. Between Anglesea, Lorne
and Apollo Bay the Great Ocean Road features the
beautiful contrast of the ocean beaches on
one side and the forests and mountains of
the Otway Ranges on the other.
The Otway Ranges stretch from Anglesea to
Cape Otway and offer beautiful hills,
waterfalls, excellent walking tracks and
picnic spots. At Apollo Bay the Great Ocean
Road leaves the coast and winds through the
rainforest of Cape Otway.
The Great Ocean Road returns to hug the
coastline along the entire length of the
Port Campbell National Park. This stretch
offers dramatic coastal scenery, with the
road twisting and turning. Along this
stretch of the Great Ocean Road is an
amazing collection of rock sculptures such
as 'The Twelve Apostles' - huge stone
pillars looming out of the surf - and
'London Bridge', a rocky promontory arch
carved out by the sea.
The Great Ocean Road boasts ocean surf
beaches and safe swimming beaches, a boat
harbour, golf courses,
fine dining, wineries, nature &
tours, including seal watching, and
excellent fishing and, the Great Ocean Walk.
Together these make the Great Ocean Road an
unforgettable place to visit.
Transport is plentiful.
