Australia: The Great Ocean Road

There is one that should be on everyone’s list to do in Australia and that is a road trip; the only trouble is I don’t drive. Luckily I have an amazing friend, Zoe, who not only can drive but also brings lots of smiles and adventures wherever she goes. There are lots of road trip possibilities in Australia; it is a very big country, in fact the UK can fit into Australia 31.5 times! If you only have time to pick one road then it has to be the Great Ocean Road, one of the world’s most scenic coastal drives and runs from the township of Torquay to Allansford on the south-eastern coast of Australia. This is the perfect road trip if you are visiting Melbourne, as the gateway to the Great Ocean Road is only 100km from the city centre.

Getting There

Stop off at one of Geelong’s laneway cafe’s before heading down to Torquay to begin your picturesque journey along the Great Ocean Road. Taking you on a winding tour through some of Victoria’s quaintest coastal towns, the Great Ocean Road is a constant stream of photo opportunities.

DAY 1: Torquay to Kennett River

no sleeping in cars in the surf coast shire! DAY 1: Torquay to Kennett River Torquay is a surfing town, birthplace of RipCurl and Quicksilver. But if you aren’t up for surfing, there are some nice sandy beaches and walking trails along the coast that you can follow. The Surf Coast Walk begins just east of Torquay and stretches west to Fairhaven, so you can park your car at any of the free car parks along the coast, and pick up the trail for any length that you’d like. We started our 1 hour walk at the Point Danger car park. We had originally hoped to do some snorkeling there, as the Point Danger Marine Sanctuary boasts some nice kelp forests and sting rays during low tide, but the water looked pretty rough. So we continued walking along Back Beach and then picked up the Surf Coast Walk which crosses Spring Creek on a nice boardwalk pathway. We continued to Rocky Point for some nice views before returning to the car.
