Great Ocean Road

Winding along the western coast of Victoria

The Great Ocean Road is a beautiful, scenic region

Located a few hours by road from Melbourne, the Great Ocean Road offers magnificent views of the Victorian landscape and coastal towns. One of the highlights and a significant site of the region, is the remnants of the Twelve Apostles – natural limestone pillars freestanding in the Southern Ocean. These fantastic natural features are the result of millions of years of constant erosion from the mainland’s limestone cliffs.

There are plentiful activities to be discovered along the Great Ocean Road, including swimming in the clear, crisp ocean, sea kayaking with the local seals, deep-sea fishing or learning to surf.

The Great Ocean Road is one of the most iconic road trips and is full of quaint seaside towns, fresh seafood and beautiful scenery, there is often not enough time to view it all. To make the day even more special, include a one-way helicopter ride and explore the region by air.

  • Taste the incredible fresh local seafood to be found along the Great Ocean Road.
  • Include a one-way helicopter experience to make the most of this special day, providing a unique perspective of this iconic destination.
  • Visit one of the region’s most significant highlights, viewing the beauty of the remaining 12 Apostles.

Summer (December to February) along the Great Ocean Road is typically warm, with beautiful sunny days as the norm. Average temperatures range between 20.6 – 21.8°C (69.1 – 71.2°F), however it is also common for the region to reach temperatures of 30°C (86°F) and above. Winter (June to August) can be cold and wet along the coast, with the average daily temperature sitting between 13.6 – 14°C (56.5 – 57.2°F).

Autumn (March to May) and spring (September to November) are beautiful seasons to spend along the Great Ocean Road, with the days typically languid and warm with mild temperatures averaging between 15.7 – 20.1°C (60.3 – 68.2°F).
