Great Ocean Road

The other place to be!

Climb aboard your motorhome and travel southern Victoria via the Great Ocean Road, a coastal road built after the Second World War. Driving along over 300 km of cliffs you will pass beautiful, deserted beaches, popular surfing spots and posh beach resorts. Between Torquay and Allansford you will pass Apollo Bay where you can stop for a scuba diving course. Port Campbell is the most visited spot in this region, but you will also pass Peterborough which is a lovely seaside setting.

After departing from Torquay a stop at Bells Beach or Jan Juc is a must! At Bells Beach the big waves breaking on the beach are impressive. Continue along the coast and stop for a real sun-break on the golden sands of Lorne. At Apollo Bay you will find beautiful hiking trails for all levels and you can swim or dive to enjoy the beauty of the Australian reefs. Don't miss the magnificent rock formations of the 12 Apostles, the most well known site along this route. Close by is the Great Ocean Walk, 104 km of hiking trails of different lengths. You can do a hike of a few hours, a whole day hike or even one that takes several days.

Woud you like even more hiking trails? Try the Shipwreck Coast which offers a complete change of scenery. It is situated in the heart of Port Campbell National Park, and is home to the Loch Ard Gorge.
