The Great Ocean Road

Explore the windswept Southern Ocean as you wind along one of Australia’s best road trips–the Great Ocean Road. From dramatic coastal lookouts to rainforests and national parks, this diverse and awe-inspiring trip is one to put in your travel itinerary. 

The Great Ocean Road takes you past a variety of amazing sights and landscapes such as beaches, historical ports, mountain ranges, the incredible limestone stacks of the Twelve Apostles and shipwrecks near Port Fairy.

As well as enjoying the various geographical delights you can also see some of Australia’s iconic creatures at various places along the way. Some stand out animal experiences include watching the southern right whales passing by Warrnambool during their annual migration; seeing kangaroos, koalas and emus at Tower Hill State Game Reserve; visiting the hundreds of fur seals lazing about at Cape Bridgewater; and gazing at the glow worms as they light up Melba Gully during the night.

Be sure to pack your swimwear, hiking gear and camera to make the most of your trip!
