Great Ocean Road

The journey along Victoria’s Great Ocean Road is one of the world’s most scenic coastal drives and is an experience that sits high on many travellers’ bucket lists. It begins just an hour and a half’s drive from Melbourne and then stretches for 243 kilometres between Torquay and Warrnambool with amazing views the whole way through.

This spectacular road winds between lush green farm land and the rugged southern coastline of Australia. Designed to connect remote and previously isolated settlements along the coast, this engineering masterpiece was built by returned soldiers between 1919 and 1932 in memory of the fallen soldiers of WWI.

The Great Ocean Road leads you through a string of gorgeous coastal towns including Anglesea and Apollo Bay before you arrive at the world renowned natural icon, the Twelve Apostles.

Enjoy the cool ocean breeze and take in magnificent views of the Apostles from the purpose built viewing platform. An experience you’ll no doubt remember forever.

Just a little further ahead you’ll come across two more fascinating natural landmarks, Loch Ard Gorge and London Bridge and learn more about the amazing shipwreck survival that took place there.

This part of the world is home to a number of popular surfing beaches including the famous Bells Beach which plays host to international surfing competitions and was even featured in the Hollywood film ‘Point Break’ featuring Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze.
