“Must visit...”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

I have taken the Great Ocean Drive twice and would gladly do it again. Rent a car and take your time. I typically put up a night in Apollo Bay and take detours along the way.

“Every Bit as Good as the 12 Apostles”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Surprised by the Bay of Islands, maybe it was the time of day (later in the afternoon), the sun was shining on the cliffs and everything was very bright, the view of these islands was spectacular, every bit as good as the 12 apostles.

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Beautiful views... Did a roadtrip with a friend and we didnt have a driver license so we took the V-Line from Apollo Bay to Warrnambool. Worthy all those curves in the highway ;)

By the way, I visited the Great Ocean Road on June-July 2012... TripAdvisor would not let me choose that date

“First stop Warrnambool end of Great Ocean Rd”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

Starting the Great Ocean Rd at Warrnambool is, in my opinion, the best way to do the Great Ocean Rd. Bay of Islands is the first stop. Beautiful scenery. Great photo opportunities.
