Where to Go in Victoria (Australia)

As it is so vast the Great Ocean Road Region offers a variety of holiday options. Plus it’s easy to access from interstate as well as Melbourne’s CBD. Below are just a few suggestions of where to go on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria:

  • Beach holidays: Our beaches are spectacular year-round but if you’re thinking about where to go in Victoria in summer you really can’t go wrong with coastal towns like Lorne, Apollo Bay, Warrnambool, Portland and Torquay.
  • Camping holidays: We have camping spots across the region but one of our most popular areas is in the Great Otway National Park. There you will find fully-serviced drive-in spots as well as walk-in locations. The park is a great place to enjoy both the coastline and the hinterland – beaches, lakes, waterfalls and rainforests.
  • Pick-me-up holidays: Although big nature is one of the most popular attractions we also have a gourmet trail, wellness retreats, fine-dining restaurants, wineries, breweries, chocolatiers, ice-cream makers and more.
  • Secluded holidays: If basing yourself in a town doesn’t sound relaxing enough we have locations for more secluded breaks such as places with just a few shops (like Wye River), places where the main feature is nature (like Skipton famed for its platypus) and places that can be all about dairy and whiskey (like Timboon).
