The Great Ocean Road, Torquay

4.8
Experience one of the world's most scenic coastal drives, along the south-west coast of Victoria. Take a drive on the spectacular Great Ocean Road, which winds alongside the wild and windswept Southern Ocean. Home to the world-class surf at Bells Beach and the craggy limestone spires of the 12 Apostles, this diverse and dramatic region is best explored over the course of a few days. The Great Ocean Road begins a 90 minute drive from Melbourne's city centre. It spans 400 kilometres (249 miles) from the town of Torquay to Nelson on the South Australian border.

  • I left Melbourne with a group of friends. We rented a car and, during the day, we walked across the Great Ocean Road. Along the way you can make stops to visit various local attractions: Koala reserve, Apollo Bay and London Bridge. Final destination of the route is the visit to the twelve apostles. A wonder of nature that leaves you speechless. Ample parking allows you to leave your car and get close to the twelve apostles through a pleasant walk. For those who, like me, take this route from Melbourne and the rate is very low. If you are shopping for cars and 5 rental is around $30 each. Absolutely worth the money!
