Family friendly

The Great Ocean Road region is a popular spot for family holidays in Victoria. It not only has great beaches and access to spectacular national parks and adventure playgrounds but also hosts a plethora of galleries, museums and fun learning activities.

Fun-Filled Family Destinations

One popular activity for family friendly holidays in Victoria is the Flagstaff Hill Maritime Museum and Village. It offers all the magic of understanding history through a step-back-in-time experience along with the option to watch dazzling light and sound shows. 

Another great activity for family friendly holidays in Victoria is to take in the spectacular views at the Cape Otway Light Station while appreciating and understanding more about indigenous Australian history. At the Light Station’s Aboriginal Cultural Site visitors can enjoy bush tucker, spear throwing, painting and stories from local guides.

Or, explore the full list of holiday destinations by browsing all the towns and villages along the Great Ocean Road.
