Without question, one of the world’s great coastal journeys.
As the road sweeps along the shoreline and traces cliff faces before revealing the jewel that tis the 12 Apostles, be sept away by gorgeous coastal towns, ancient rainforests, native animals and magnificent vistas all wrapped in an incredible story of time spanning eons.
From establishing a lifeline for what was once one of the most isolated and treacherous parts of Australia to the carving of a land that time forgot, the Great Ocean Road provides an adventure like no other.
Stretching 247 kilometres (153 miles) from end to end, there are a multitude of ways to approach your experience of this region depending on your preferences and time – but no matter how you approach it, it’s going to be an epic experience in time and wonder.
Exclusive Wine Experiences
Go Beyond the Road…. Overnight in boutique accommodation and experience the artisan townships and produce that complete the region. Perhaps a warming local whiskey with dinner?
Multiple itinerary options to suit. Early start, sunset trips, 12 Apostles express. Combine with another region to make a circuit adventure from Melbourne (Grampians, Mornington/Phillip Island) or as part of a longer touring route.
Fresh from the sea
Exquisite cuisine from signature chefs hat to crayfish literally straight off the boat
For those limited on time, an express journey to the awe-inspiring sight of the Apostles region ensures you don’t miss one of natures great wonders.
A big day experience (we suggest 12-13 hours to do it justice) can be done either in ‘reverse’ (heading straight to the Apostles then tracing back along the road) or in the classic East-West direction (our preference to experience the full impact of the region as well as tracing the history of its story as it unfolded). See our “10 things you need to know when booking an Experience in Melbourne” for a full explanation of all the possibilities and options.
A wealth of meet the maker artisan experiences, hikes, native animal encounters, seafood straight from the boat abound for those willing to venture further, making it ideal for an overnight experience or as part of an extension to a longer touring route.
