MUST DO'S....THIS WINTER

WHALES !

Have you spotted a whale? Upload your whale sighting direct to our whale blog.

The National Heritage listed Great Ocean Road hugs Victoria's western coastline and is your path to the spectacular views and theatrics of the Southern Ocean.

Almost every year between June and September, female Southern Right whales return to the Southern Ocean to calve.

The whales often swim within a hundred metres of the shore, they are easily viewed from the iconic lookouts and bays along the Great Ocean Road. Please park safely, well off the road and obey road rules.

WALKS

The Great Ocean Road region is a natural for walking, hiking, rambling and ambling, whatever your ability or experience level. There's no better way to communicate with nature and checkout the scenery, than to lace up you comfy shoes, strap on a backpack and hit the trail.

Discover the region’s diversity of plants, animals and scenery as you take to the Great Ocean Walk located in the Great Ocean Road region between Apollo Bay and the iconic Twelve Apostles, hugging this rugged coastline for more than 100km.

The big skies and wild nature of the Walk will astound you.
