Great Ocean Road: What to Do?

Here are a few suggestions of what to do on the Great Ocean Road

  • Bells Beach

Both beautiful, and a famous surf beach (home to the annual Rip Curl Pro event), Bells is a great place to stop and take in gigantic waves from the comfort of the golden sand. Plus it’s close to all the amenities of Torquay, so you can copy the locals and grab some fish and chips to enjoy while you’re there.

  • Dine Out on Food & Wine

Our region offers some of the best in fresh produce, wines, craft beers, ciders and fine dining. A great way to take these in is by travelling a gourmet trail like the 12 Apostles Food Artisans.

  • Whale and Koala Watching

You can spot whales breaching between Torquay and Warrnambool during the cooler months (May to September). And year-round you can see Koalas in Cape Otway (try camping under the koalas at Bimbi Park), Kennett River, Wye River, Wongarra and Lorne.
