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.

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.

When enjoying the coastline this summer, remember to stay away from cliffs and caves. Cliff danger zones are above and below. In 2021, debris from a cliff collapse in Anglesea had the weight of approximately 10 million kilograms, or 400 full grown humpback whales.

Stay on established tracks above and avoid the base of cliffs below by the distance of their height or more.
