Great Ocean Road Journey

The Great Ocean Road is truly breathtaking, where nature is at its dramatic best. There are amazing things to discover around every twist and turn the road takes.  Bounded by the Southern Ocean and the Otway National Park, the road climbs spectacularly along the cliff face in parts, then winds down to sand level alongside crashing waves. 

The road passes through some fabulous towns and villages which add to the experience of the journey.  Virtually every meal has an ocean view, every stretch of the legs is a breath of fresh sea air.
