The Great Ocean Road itself spans over 240 kilometres – add to this the inland areas within the region and there is a lot to do! So, we’ve outlined a few attractions – and links to further information – about what you can do on the Great Ocean Road below.

What is There to Do on The Great Ocean Road?

Here are six of the major attractions on the Great Ocean Road:

  1. The Twelve Apostles – these massive limestone structures stand 45 metres above the Southern Ocean and are simply breath-taking.
  2. Great Otway National Park – over 1000 square kilometres of rugged coastlines, sandy beaches and rock platforms as well as tall forests, waterfalls and ferny gullies.
  3. Loch Ard Gorge – blowholes and formations like the Razorback and Island arch make this spot both beautiful and rich in shipwreck history.

4. London Bridge – comprising sweeping vistas of the ocean this is also a place where visitors can observe penguins returning to shore.
5. The Great Ocean Walk - a one-way long-distance walk from east to west weaving through tall forests and coastal heathlands. It’s just over 100 kilometres between Apollo Bay and the Twelve Apostles.
6. Apollo Bay – a seaside township just a few kilometres from rainforest, streams, waterfalls and fireflies.
