Visit the Great Ocean Road, Australia

Hugging the contours of Victoria’s rugged coast, this famous road snakes from the surf-capital of Torquay past cliffs, scenic lookouts, rainforests, wrecked ships, and laidback fishing villages on its way to Port Fairy.

Between Angelsea and Lorne the Otway Ranges forests are riven with waterfalls and bushwalks, with the Otway Fly walkway offering you a chance to explore the forest canopy.

Along the Great Ocean Road

Twelve Apostles, Great Ocean RoadDrive along the coastline past the tiny hamlets of Wye River and Skenes Creek to Apollo Bay, and briefly head inland to Lavers Hill, the highest point in the Otway Ranges, where Melba Gully has one of the most impressive rainforest walks.

Princetown marks the boundaries of the Otway and Port Campbell National Parks, where the spectacular Shipwreck Coast starts. Picturesque Warrnambool, less than half an hour from Port Fairy, is a lovely maritime village where each June southern ‘right whales’ visit to calve offshore.
