Best Places to Travel in Victoria

Here are just a few of the best places on the Great Ocean Road:

  • One of our most popular attractions is the 12 Apostles, it’s coastline and hinterland – the Apostles are limestone structures which rise 45 metres above the Southern Ocean. These majestic natural sculptures are guaranteed to take your breath away.
  • Bells Beach in Torquay, as well as Johanna Beach, is known for hosting the internationally recognised Rip Curl Pro competition. While these are our more famous surfing spots we have plenty of other surfing options!
  • Portland is a regional town located on a more rugged part of the coast with a lively waterfront district. It’s an angler’s paradise and rich in settler history. It’s a great place from which to enjoy a portion of, or to start the Great South West Walk – a 250-kilometre walk through forest, gorges and capes.
