Great Ocean Road

South-west Victoria's most scenic roadway, it wends its way to the nature's awe-inspiring monoliths, the Twelve Apostles, with lively resident penguins that entertain as they frolic in the foam below. Hit the road and explore the Otways rainforest, Bells Beach and resort towns like Torquay, Lorne and Apollo Bay, coastal cities of Geelong and learn the history of The Shipwreck Coast in delightful historic fishing villages like Queenscliff and Port Fairy.


At the heart of the Great Ocean Road, the cosmopolitan tourist hub of Lorne is the perfect place to relax and recharge the batteries. Catch a wave at the surf beach, visit the vibrant cafés and restaurants, or explore the coastal rainforest region of Erskine Falls, home to the famous Falls Festival.
