Enjoy a 240 kilometres drive between Anglesea and Port Campbell, where you can view breathtaking landscape of cliffs and Bass Strait. You'll find along the drive that Victoria's south coast is riddled with stunning beaches. Here's how our ideal trip to the Great Ocean Road looks like.
Here's where the road begin. Bells Beach boasts excellent landscape along the cliff. If you're an experience surfer, the waves on Bells Beach will also provide a challenge.
In this town by the Southern Ocean, you can walk along the beach by following the 44-km Surf Coast Walk trail. But don't stay too long, we still have heaps of beaches to explore today!
Next stop, we drop by at Erskine Falls, one of the famous waterfalls in the region. You can view the waterfall from two different lookouts. The upper lookout is easily accessible, just 5 minutes walk from the car park. If you're naturally inclined, take a walk 240 steps down to the lower lookout, where you can view the waterfall from down below.
By now, you must have been a bit restless after quite a long drive. We'll stop by at Lorne for lunch. While you're here, why not have a look at the Great Ocean Road Heritage Centre? It is an permanent exhibition at the Lorne Visitor Centre, telling the story how the Great Ocean Road was built back in 1919.
The main highlight of all Great Ocean Road trip. The Twelve Apostles are a series of stacks of rocks rising from the sea. If you're here by sunset, you can see the Twelve Apostles gradually change colours to brilliant yellow under the sun.
Loch Ard Gorge
All good things must come to a close, but who says our drive along Great Ocean Road cannot end with a bang? Here in Loch Ard Gorge, you can follow the steps down to a small beach hiding behind the gorge.
Bonus: Gibson Steps
Tread carefully on the Gibson Steps, an 86-steps pathway carved into the face of the cliff by a local settler, Hugh Gibson. When you've reached the beach, be amazed by the 70-metres twin giant limestone stacks rising offshore, affectionately nicknamed Gog and Magog. (Please note that Gibson Steps may or may not be included in the trip, subject to weather and tidal conditions during the day.)
