Front of Butterfly Farm B&B

The Great Ocean Road is an enchanting place for country getaways in Victoria. Sure, its name comes from the road that winds along our southernmost coastal edges – but did you know our hinterland is among the most fertile farming land in Victoria? Because of this it’s home to plenty of cottage industries like farm-stores, flower farms, wineries and distilleries. To learn more check out our Foodies page.

Turning inland from the Great Ocean Road can have you climbing through rugged bushland, or travelling between green pastures. Places like Deans Marsh, Winchelsea and Timboon are just a few of the gorgeous county towns that make our region one of the best country getaways in Victoria.
