One of the greatest all-time drives

12 Apostles Great Ocean RoadOne of the world’s greatest natural wonders can be enjoyed from the comfort of a vehicle, as you cruise the 245km stretch of Great Ocean Road. Awe-inspiring clifftops and incredible rock formations, sweet surfing spots and natural bushland makes for some pretty spectacular scenery. See the famous Apostles, enjoy the charming coastal towns and relish in the fresh air. All this and only 2 hours from the hustle and bustle of Melbourne!

An all-year-round getaway

The summer months down the Great Ocean Road are some of the most spectacular, but also the busiest. If you are wanting to surf, swim and enjoy the summer festival vibe, it's the best time of year to go.

Surfing Great Ocean RoadThere is, however, alot to be said about the shoulder periods in this region. In winter, the Great Ocean Road becomes a great escape from the summer tourist crush, when you can enjoy cool walks on the beach and incredible whale watching. Spring, as the weather is fining up, is ideal for nature walks and waterfall experiences in the Otway National Park. Truth be told, there is never a bad time to explore the Great Ocean Road.

Whether you’re visiting the Great Ocean Road on a romantic getaway, family adventure or a girl’s weekend away, there truly is something for everyone. From nature walks and learning to surf, to spa days, whale watching, indulging in the local gourmet produce, or simply sitting back and appreciating the stunning drive!
