GrEAT Ocean Road Trip Series

The Great Ocean Road has long been a favourite destination for travellers across Australia and indeed the globe.

Its rugged coastline stretching from Torquay all the way through to the South Australian border is a wonderland of natural beauty. From Bells Beach, the mecca of Australian surf, the Twelve Apostles and countless hidden tracks and waterfalls through its lush hinterland, taking a trip along the Victorian west coast offers something for adventurers from all walks of life.

As if its natural beauty isn’t enough, when you dig a little deeper, you’ll unleash your inner foodie and delight your senses. The Great Ocean Road is bursting with fresh produce from sea and land with artisan producers, cafés, breweries, distilleries and restaurateurs pushing the boundaries of culinary excellence and creating food experiences that will serve up a fresh dish of FOMO to your friends looking on back home!

“GrEAT Ocean Roadtrip” will introduce you to some of the characters behind the plates and give you a taste of the diverse and delicious fare this spectacular region has to offer. So, all that’s left to do is grab your travel buddy, pack the car and hit the road for a food experience like no other!
