The Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia, stretches for 243 kilometres along some of the Australia’s most spectacular coastline. The road winds along the coast and passes through the pretty seaside towns of Anglesea, Apollo Bay, Port Campbell and Lorne and passes by landmarks including the The Twelve Apostles, London Arch and Loch Ard Gorge. It is a must see for anyone travelling to Victoria and makes for a beautiful weekend or overnight trip from Melbourne. If you prefer walking to driving, the Great Ocean Walk connects 104 kilometres of hiking trails between Apollo Bay and The Twelve Apostles. There are plenty of places to stay along the coast for all tastes and budgets and some great food and wine experiences along the way. ELE travel tip – if possible avoid summer school holidays and long weekends when the towns are full to capacity and the road is busy.
