Visit Australia's Great Ocean Road

 
Just over an hour in the car from Melbourne's city centre spans 243km of stunning views of the diverse Australian landscape.
 
Considered one of the world’s best road trips on the planet, The Great Ocean Road is over 80 years old. It was built by returned soldiers between 1919 and 1932 and dedicated to those killed during World War I, making the road the world's largest war memorial.
 
Whether you are a lover of history and heritage attractions or keen on walking tracks and surfing opportunities, you will find spectacular experiences along the drive.

The Twelve Apostles

The Twelve Apostles are perhaps the most iconic experience of the Great Ocean Road drive. They're massive structures that were formed some 20 million years ago as the sea gradually eroded the soft craggy limestone cliffs.
 
With eight of the Apostles remaining above water level, the towering rocks that the water ferociously crashes against puts into perspective the power of the ocean and how it shapes our earth.
 
If you have the time, experience the Apostles either at sunrise when the place is empty or at sunset for a magical experience you won't forget.

The Loch Ard Gorge

Nearby, the Loch Ard Gorge is just five minutes from the Apostles and combines history with the powerful coastline.
 
The gorge is named after the ship that crashed into it in 1878, killing 52 passengers on board.
 
The two survivors, Tom and Eva, are immortalised in the location as the names of the gorge’s massive pillars.
 
Stairs are located down to the beach allowing you to explore the area, along with a small museum and plaques to remember the history of the area.
 
However, the Great Ocean Road offers more than just stunning views of the gorgeous coast, as it bends into the Australian forest.
 

The Otways National Park

The Otways National Park feels like something out of a classic fantasy novel as you become surrounded by incredibly tall trees and giant tree ferns.
 
As you enter the park, you will discover beautiful waterfalls, with Triplet Falls a highlight of the whole drive.
 
The walk to the falls is about an hour return loop and is easily accessible for families with platforms providing spectacular views of falls.
 
Magnificent experiences continue through the whole Great Ocean Road drive, with the most southern point housing a small village and gorgeous lighthouse.
 

The Cape Otway Lighthouse

The Cape Otway Lighthouse was built in 1848 and is Australia's oldest working lighthouse. 
 
From winter to spring, standing at the lighthouse provides one of the best vantage points in the country for land-based whale watching as migrating whales swim very close to shores, putting on a stunning display for tourists and locals alike.
 
The village that surrounds it is also rich with Australian culture and worth exploring for an afternoon wander.
 
Along the drive there are countless opportunities around almost every bend for breathtaking views and places to stop and enjoy local produce. 
 
Make the most out of Brisbane Airport parking and book a long weekend flight away to Melbourne and swap the Queensland sun with the natural wonders waiting for you at the Great Ocean Road.
 
Hire a car when you land or book a day bus tour in advance to experience the trip’s rugged splendour.
