To help you decide what to see on the Great Ocean Road in Australia here are just a few ideas:
Before settlement the Great Ocean Road region was home to indigenous Australians from the Gunditjmara, Wathaurong, Eastern Maar and Gadubanud language groups. At the Cape Otway Lightstation’s Aboriginal Meeting Hut you can do a heritage tour with Gadubanud guides. Neil Fahey has detailed his experience of the tour in our blog.
Port Fairy is home to so many artists that it’s developed a Port Fairy Art Map for tourists to follow. Enjoy the easy walk through the town to a collection of galleries and studios.
The town of Portland hosts a large number of historical buildings and settler history-related activities. While in Portland pick up the self-guided historical buildings map at the Visitor Information Centre.
