Great Ocean Road Adventures

Where to Visit in Victoria

Where to Visit in Victoria

Although our name draws attention to our beaches, ocean views and rugged limestone clifftops, the Great Ocean Road region offers a much wider array of places including eucalypt forests that play home to spectacular birds, koalas and wallabies. Our suggestions for where to travel in Victoria include:

  1. The Twelve Apostles: These are a series of natural limestone structures which stand 45 metres above the ocean.
  2. The Great Otway National Park: This park stretches from our beautiful coastline and far inland to take in magnificent rainforests, waterfalls and lakes.
  3. Volcanic Lakes and Plains: Even further inland you can enjoy the vast outlooks and crater-lakes caused by the now extinct volcano.

What to do on the Great Ocean Road Victoria

Our region also offers a huge range of things to see and do.

  1. Local Produce: We think ours is the best in fresh produce, wines, craft beers, ciders and fine dining. Test our claims by travelling a gourmet trail like the 12 Apostles Food Artisans.
  2. Koala and whale watching: Throughout the year there are wild koalas to see in Cape Otway, Kennett River, Wye River, Wongarra and Lorne. Plus from May to September you can spot whales breaching between Torquay and Portland.
