Sometimes nature likes to show off and this beautiful piece of coast line is a testament to how clever nature is. This is a must see part of Australia. The walk from the carpark is easy and safe from traffic. It is suitable for prams...More

Awesome coastal views with crashing waves. The boardwalks are well maintained and easy to access to view and take photos. Access to the 12 (actually now only 8) Apostles is via a walkway under the road. Great idea to keep the traffic moving and to...More

About 2 hr drive from Melbourne. Well worth your time. Beautiful scenery and a few lovely stops that get you ready for the tremendously beautiful Twelve Apostles. The sight of the waves crashing onto the rock, the scenery from the top of a cliff, and...More

Excellent views whilst cruising the road on our motorbike. Even though there are road works happening at the moment this was still an awesome trip & loved every second.

The tour I took of the Great Ocean Road was good, but not great. The tour guide wasn't particularly friendly (though he did warm up throughout the day) and there was a lot of space where he didn't fill us in on much, but the...More

The Great Ocean Road is always a great drive. Wonderful views at each turn, beautiful sandy beaches and great towns such as Lorne and Apollo Bay and of course the famous Twelve Apostles.

We rented a car and drove ourselves. I recommend it as you can stop at your leisure and there's lots to see along the Great Ocean Road. There is a lot of construction so don't be in a rush. We really enjoyed Apollo Bay!

We started at Torquay and had to end our journey just past Port Campbell. Amazing views of the ocean and rock formations and many hiking and walking trails. Make sure you go at least as far as the Grotto. That is not to be missed...More

Hello there, Actually, we used our car for this trip and did not hire a bike. I did not see anyone cycling on this road but I saw lots of motobikes. That said, the great ocean road can be a challenging trip for ordinary road... More
