Holiday To Great Ocean Road

You’re always on the move, looking for the best wave breaks, stellar scenery and new favourite foods. So it goes without saying that your dream trip will keep you rolling. 
Whether you start your holiday on Great Ocean Road in Torquay to the east or in Allansford to the west, you’ll find plenty reasons to stop along the way. Running along 243 km of Victoria’s south coast, this famous highway is the longest war memorial in the world, built in honour of Australia’s World War I soldiers. It’s also lined with beaches, gorgeous landmarks and natural wonders, like the Twelve Apostles limestone formations, so pack your bathers and a camera. Snatch up some Great Ocean Road package deals to save up and simplify for the long haul.

Things to Do on Great Ocean Road

Before you can cruise through the towns and villages along the good ol’ B100, you’ll need a set of road trip-ready wheels. If you’re coming from the Melbourne area, pick up one of Wotif’s Great Ocean Road car hire deals and start your adventure in Torquay. If you drive straight through, your Great Ocean Road holiday should take about 4 hours and 30 minutes, but go ahead and get distracted by the blond sand at Bells Beach before you even leave the first town. If you want a fresh perspective when you roll into Aireys Inlet, take a tour to the top of Split Point Lighthouse. We don’t expect you to drive without tucking in to a lovely beach bungalow hotel and spending a few days working on your tan or hanging ten. For the biggest city sights on the route, hold out for Warrnambool, home to the historic Flagstaff Hill Maritime Village, which showcases the history of this seaside road. Allansford Cheese World and Museum, on the other hand, showcases cheese.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

We hope you chose a car with a big boot, because Great Ocean Road holidays are for shoppers. Many of the towns and villages are little artist havens and you can start your collection of seaside masterpieces in colourful galleries. This ambling thoroughfare doesn’t belong to just the beach-combers. Farmers markets offer a tasty look into the countryside along the Great Ocean Road, so start grazing!

Most of the restaurants on Great Ocean Road are located in Torquay and Warrnambool, which means you’ve gotta stuff your face before you start the journey and then when you reach the end. Just kidding. There’s plenty of options along the way—especially if you love modern Aussie fare and heaps of fish and seafood—but if you want to plan a fancy dinner, you’ll have more options at the bookends and anywhere there’s a beautiful beach.

Stopping for pints along Great Ocean Road would be the ultimate pub crawl, but your legs would get tired. Instead, focus your energy on the cosy bar scenes in Torquay, Lorne and Warrnambool.

What’s Next?

Rev your engines, traveller. It’s time to get away on a road trip that always follows the scenic route. Book Great Ocean Road packages with Wotif and get ready to roll!
