Bushland setting

If you’re thinking of undertaking some interstate travel in Australia our advice is to choose a location that offers the widest range of attractions.

Because Victoria’s Great Ocean Road region hugs the state’s South West coastline for over 240-kilometres and travels deep into its hinterland, we have everything you need from camping to five-star accommodation, outdoor activities, cultural activities, dining options and wellness retreats.

One of our biggest attractions however is what we call our Big Nature

Take Your Interstate Travel to the Great Ocean Road

The Great Ocean Road starts 103 kilometres from Melbourne’s Central Business District and runs all the way to the South Australian border. 

It offers beaches and coastlines, native bushland, charming historical townships and rolling farmland. It’s easy to spend a couple of weeks exploring its vast attractions (or dip in for a couple of days).

Just three of our most popular natural attractions include:

  1. The Twelve Apostles – possibly Victoria’s most famous regional tourist attraction these are natural limestone structures that tower above the Southern Ocean.
  2. Great Otway National Park – with tall forests, waterfalls and ferny gullies this park also boasts rugged coastlines, sandy beaches and rock platforms.
  3. Port Campbell National Park – which in addition to the Twelve Apostles includes natural coastal attractions such as Loch Ard Gorge, London Bridge, The Arch and the Grotto.
