IMPORTANT MESSAGE

A small section of the Great Ocean Road between Separation Creek and Wye River remains closed to through traffic however all towns on the Great Ocean Road can now be reached, either from the east or west, and are open for business.

Some speed and traffic management is in place at a number of key locations.

Visitors wanting to travel the length of the GOR, can travel through to Lorne then detour inland along the C151 and then down the C119 through Forrest to Apollo Bay to continue their journey. Although this adds an additional 40km, this route takes you through the Great Otway National Park a haven for wildlife and home to amazing waterfalls which are at their picturesque best post rain.

Accredited Visitor Information Centres can assist in helping you plan your journey.



Take extra care on the road - drive to conditions and be aware of road hazards such as mud, debris, damaged roads and bridges. Check VicTraffic on the VicRoads website www.vicroads.vic.gov.au or road condition updates and any road closures.

Information on park and walking track closures is available at www.parkweb.vic.gov.au
