Great Ocean Road
Watch nature's drama unfold around every turn of the Great Ocean Road, which stretches from Torquay, near Melbourne, to Portland. Experience the raw power of the Southern Ocean as it meets rugged cliffs, tangled forests and secluded beaches. Surf at Torquay, see the magnificent Twelve Apostles and walk past waterfalls in lush Great Otway National Park. Connect to the region's rich Aboriginal history at Geelong, Tower Hill and Lake Condah and spot whales from historic Warrnambool. Stretch out your journey with a stay in seaside towns such as Lorne, Apollo Bay and Port Fairy.
