Great Ocean Road is the go-to destination in Melbourne for travellers who like to drive! Rent a car and enjoy the sea breeze and relaxing sound of the waves. There are places along the Great Ocean Road that make a good stop and for a quick photo shutter.
The roads are winding and do take note of the speed limit from roads to roads.
Another thing to note is that when there’re road works, the road becomes a shared lane. Hence do not ignore the make-shift traffic light!
Here are things you can see at Great Ocean Road!
Park at the Twelve Apostles car park and walk to the viewing deck. Check out the cool view of the limestones and enjoy the coastal breeze.
When you are done, take a short walk to Gibsons Steps. It is just minutes away.
Take a stroll here by the beach and relax with a great view of the 12 Apostles.
Drive towards Apollo Bay and take a pit stop here to enjoy the magnificent view. Don’t forget to try the Fish & Chips here!
Apollo Bay Fishermen’s Co-Op
This is the traditional Fish & Chips with vinegar and salt.
Drive along the coastal road and visit Anglesea Beach. Another beach to sit, relax and calm your soul.
When you’re hungry, try out the burger at Morgan’s Bar & Grill.

The meat patty of the burger is juicy and flavourful.
When I went to Bells Beach, there was a Rip Curl Pro 2018 surfing competition! A popular beach with awesome waves to surf in!
Where to stay?
It depends on how long you would like to stay in Great Ocean Road. I would recommend that you might like to stay on the different parts of the coastal road to fully enjoy it.
I’ve opted to stay in Torquay which is like the start of Great Ocean Road. This location is convenient and just a few minutes drive out, there’re eateries.
Torquay 1903 Period Cottages
This is a great bed and breakfast place. It’s quiet and has a nice private parking space for guests.
