Spectacular, but way overcrowded on weekend s and especially long weekends. Cars park out on the road, making it extremely dangerous.

This is, BY FAR, the most amazing road in Australia and probably one of the finest in the entire world. It takes apx. a day to drive through the beautiful bush scenery on one side, and the magnificent deep blue ocean on the other side....More

Such a majestic place and wonderful creation. We really enjoyed our whole trip there. A bit touristy but it’s all worth it. Definitely a must to visit.

Something all Australians should have on their bucket list. Amazing views of the coastline but be ready to be stuck in some traffic as most of it has no over taking.

Day 1: Arrive in Melbourne 08:50, head to the CBD and stay the night in the city Day 2: Pick up rental car and set out for the GOR, stay 1 night at Port Campbell Day 3: Continue on GOR, stay the night at Warrnambool Day 4: Explore Port Fairy and head to Grampians in the afternoon for a short hike, stay the night at Halls Gap or Port Fairy? Day 5: Explore Grampians, stay the night at Halls Gap Day 6: Return to Melbourne (should we take the inland road or back on the GOR?) Days 7-9: Explore Melbourne Any recommendations on budget car rental companies would be appreciated as well :) Thank you!
