The Great Ocean Road is without a doubt the most spectacular road trip in Victoria. Starting in the surf town of Torquay, the road itself hugs the coastline, offering breath-taking views of the ocean and verdant paths through eucalyptus forests.
In addition to its natural attractions, such as the Twelve Apostles and the Great Otway National Park, the Great Ocean Road offers a foodie’s paradise and plenty of activities for all of the family, making it one of the leading Victoria road trip destinations.
A Great Ocean Road trip is also among the easiest road trip destinations in Victoria. It starts 103km from the Melbourne CBD (about an hour and fifteen minutes driving). You can enjoy a sample of the region in a few days, or a whole week.
