Itinerary Overview

Winding along the southern Victorian coast just a few hours out of Melbourne, the Great Ocean Road is one of Australia’s most popular attractions, a sea of tourists cluttered around every beautiful viewpoint and an alarming number of signs reminding visitors to drive on the left in Australia. It’s popular for a reason; the wind-whipped sea cliffs, crescent coves, and flourishing koala population are enough to draw locals down the coast in equally high numbers.

From Melbourne, it only takes a few hours especially if you take the freeway that takes you directly to apollo bay and 12 Apostles.

This itinerary makes the perfect weekend trip as you can see the best of the best of Great Ocean Road drive in just 3 days and 2 night. It is one of the best road trip experiences I’ve ever experienced.
