Visiting Responsibly

All things great are worth the wait

You may need to wait a little longer than usual while on holiday this summer, but please be patient as businesses do their best to keep you safe – because all things great are worth the wait. Allow extra time and slow down to really appreciate what our region has to offer.

 

Look after yourself 
& your household

Enjoy what the Great Ocean Road region has to offer, whilst keeping safe. Whether you’re exploring the streets around a town, or our beaches, rivers, parks and waterways, there are some key things to remember. Remember that the outdoors isn’t risk-free and act with care at all times for your own safety and that of others.

Before you head out this summer take the time to plan your trip. We want you to stay safe and enjoy the best of nature. Parks Victoria has pulled together some useful tips and tricks to help you along the way.
