Great Ocean Road

The Ultimate Guide

The quintessential Australian road trip.

Covering 243 kilometres of Victorian coast, the Great Ocean Road is one of the world's largest war memorials and arguably, the most picturesque. It was built by returned World War II veterans as a dedication to their fallen comrades and has since grown to become one of the most iconic road trips in the nation.resta

Stretching from Torquay to Allansford, the drive steers alongside sheer cliff faces and through charming coastal towns. Its more notable sights include the Twelve Apostles, which are limestone stacks that emerge strikingly from the ocean, and Cape Otway Lighthouse, which is the oldest working lighthouse in Australia.

The Great Ocean Road is popularly accessed from Melbourne and can be driven in a day, or over several for a more immersive experience.

Check out our first-hand guide on how to drive the Great Ocean Road over a romantic couple's weekend.
