Great Ocean Road

Vast unspoiled forest close to the coast

This world-famous, heritage-listed coastal drive was built as a memorial to the fallen soldiers of WWI. Stretching 243km between Torquay and Allansford, it’s a scenic link of must-see landmarks like the 12 Apostles and popular resort towns Lorne and Apollo Bay. Head inland and you’ll find even more reasons to love the Great Ocean Road region.

The vast, lush rainforests of the Otway Ranges call out to be explored. Set up camp in bush surrounds and discover scenic walks, hikes and lookouts offering expansive views. Be spoilt for choice with picture-perfect picnic spots and burn off lunch on epic mountain bike trails. Enjoy the sights and sounds of babbling creeks and rapid waterfalls.
