Great Ocean Road in a Motorhome rental

4 adults (2 couples) are planning a 10 day trip in Sept driving a rental Motorhome around the Great Ocean Road area. I am looking for any advice on what kind of rental, best deals, and where we should stay?

What dates are you looking at? School holidays could impact on the availability of camp sites. These are 20/09 - 6/10 this year.

It looks as though school holidays may impact on your plans. I would suggest you pre book accommodation in some of the smaller towns on the GOR.

It might be worthwhile considering hiring a car instead of a motorhome and staying in Motels or Cabins as this may be a cheaper option.

If you do a search on TA you will find heaps of recent posts. www.visitvictoria.com.au has more info as well.

If you are heading to the GOR from the Melbourne end there is an information centre at the service station Geelong bound just north of the Avalon airport, where you will be able to stock up on maps and whatever extra info you need.

Hope you enjoy your visit to this beautiful part of Vic and return home with lots of great memories of your trip.

Safe travels.
