A long tradition of family getaways on the Great Ocean Road involves energetic kids! Running around the local beaches or enjoying various other outdoor activities – get the whole family together at one of our top 3 beach cricket locations (including Port Campbell, Wye River and Warrnambool). For various other active adventures, such as surfing, canoeing, mountain biking and more, check out our recommended outdoor activities.
The best family getaways in Victoria involve stopping at an awesome playground – we have so many that we made a Play Your Way Through the Region page showcasing them all. Our play activities include ropes courses, pirate ships, giant slides and skate parks.
For the latest information on family getaways in the region, read our categorised family friendly blog posts from locals and well-travelled writers.
