Great Ocean Road | VIC

The Great Ocean Road, Victoria. This legendary coastal route, starting at Torquay and extending 285km west to Warrnambool, is a journey along a stretch of spectacular coastline via seaside holiday towns, surf beaches, dramatic cliffs, expansive ocean, rainforest and woodlands.

Main Attractions
