Drive one of the world’s most beautiful beach front visiting courses, the Great Ocean Road, spreading over 243 kilometers along the dazzling coastline of Victoria’s south-west. Take in the all encompassing perspectives as the street twists along precipice tops, up to stunning headlands, down onto the edge of sea shores, crosswise over stream estuaries and through lavish rainforests.
The stretch among Lorne and Apollo Bay is considered by numerous individuals to be the most pleasant segment of the Great Ocean Road. The expressway is cut into sheer bluffs that drop away into the sea, offering directing perspectives on the waves from Bass Strait and the Southern Ocean growing and smashing onto the stones and sea shores underneath.
Outside Apollo Bay the street twists through the focal point of the Great Otway National Park with its lovely immaculate rainforests, before coming back to embrace the coast for the whole length of the Port Campbell National Park. This is the most popular area of the Great Ocean Road highlighting an astounding assortment of shake arrangements known as the 12 Apostles which have been cut out of the headland by the furious rushes of the Southern Ocean.
