2021 TOURING MAP PLAN YOUR GREAT ESCAPE.
A JOURNEY LIKE NO OTHER
The Great Ocean Road region is an untamed world of nature and inspiration. Named for the spectacular 243km stretch of coastal road at its heart, this place has long lured seekers and free spirits.
SHAPE YOUR OWN STORY. Car touring is the best way to explore its depth and breadth. Create your own adventure, starting where the Great Ocean Road snakes a rugged coastline carved by the Southern Ocean. Destinations and hidden gems are waiting to be discovered from Torquay to the South Australian border. Then seek the road less travelled, looping into the hinterland, across volcanic lakes and plains, through ancient rainforests, whimsical villages and rural heartland. Wander where the wild things are. Where bygone mariners sailed and pioneering surfers embraced their birthright. Shape your own story where wellness thrives in salty air. Where modern-day adventurers dare and food artisans push new boundaries. Stay a few days and witness stunning sunsets and star-filled skies.
GETTING HERE. The Great Ocean Road region is easily reached and closer than you think. By car from Melbourne, take Princes Freeway and Geelong Ring Road to reach the Surf Coast, Great Ocean Road and beyond. From the Mornington Peninsula, add another dimension to your journey with a 40-minute bay crossing on the car ferry between Sorrento and Queenscliff. The region’s western reaches are within a comfortable drive of Adelaide. If you’re fly-driving, collect your rental car at Melbourne, Avalon, Warrnambool, Portland or Adelaide Airports. Trains run regularly between Melbourne, Geelong, Colac and Warrnambool and buses run the coastal route. | visit ptv.vic.gov.au for details
TASTE THE GREAT OCEAN ROAD
Unlock the essence of this magical place and its people in gourmet experiences.
EMBARK ON A FLAVOUR-FILLED JOURNEY.

Look no further than Fish by Moonlite in Anglesea, or The Wharf Port Fairy. > At farmer’s markets, the artisan makers and producers all come together in a celebration of deliciousness; the bi-monthly Warrnambool Fresh Market, is not to be missed. > The 12 Apostles Gourmet Trail takes you through inspiring landscapes and taste experiences.

Petrified Forest, Cape Bridgewater
Nature on an epic scale – powerful ocean, towering coastal architecture and ancient landscapes. Tune into the natural world where siren songs call.
MIND-SHIFTING SHORELINE. Explore Port Campbell National Park, famed for stunning coastlines shaped by the forces of the Southern Ocean. From a secluded cove or a clifftop platform, witness nature’s drama at the Twelve Apostles and Loch Ard Gorge. Traverse the Bay of Martyrs Trail, starting at Peterborough for a magical combination of sight-seeing and soulsearching.
WATERFALLS AND WHIMSY. The Otways, where healthy rainfall nurtures year-round cascading waterfalls. Take fairy steps along mossy trails, through fern gullies, beneath ancient trees to reach Beauchamp Falls, Phantom Falls or Stevensons Falls. Enjoy beautiful scenic drives on winding forest roads.
CHASE WATERFALLS OR WINDSWEPT VISTAS. > From Lorne, Erskine Falls is within easy reach.

Stay the night for a truly unique experience.

BY THE WATER. > Between June and October, stand sentinel on windswept dunes at Warrnambool’s Logan Beach to spy southern right whales and their calves. Whales can be spotted along the coast from Torquay to Portland – log your sightings and sign up to whale mail: | visitgreatoceanroad.org.au/whale-sightings > At Cape Bridgewater, embrace a 2-hour return walk or guided boat tour to sight seals basking on rocks between fishing expeditions. > Canoe across Lake Elizabeth’s mirror-still waters in search of elusive platypus.

Do something you’ve never done before. Take yourself down to the sea – or a lake or a river – and immerse yourself in the natural world.
FEEL THE FREEDOM. Kayak, sail, swim, surf, dive and more. Line-up on the same shore breaks that lured 1960s surfing pathfinders to make Torquay the spiritual home of surfing. Dozens of beaches fringe the region’s southern edge – seek out your favourite among secluded coves, resort seafronts and remote rocky shorelines. Be aware of your surroundings and swim at patrolled beaches. Where the forest meets the sea, discover rivers teeming with diversity and wander into the hinterland for vast lakes shimmering with potential.

Henderson Falls, Lorne
Leave the beaten path behind for adventure-based activities in big nature. Make terra firma your platform for leaping into the new. Walk or hike for hours or days on end. Reach into fresh territory; go far enough to find yourself. At Visitor Information Centres, glean information and discover your best options among Great Ocean Walk, Surf Coast Walk, Great South West Walk and a host of others. Feel the freedom of two-wheeling in nature. Cycle MTB central in and around the Otways township of Forrest or try the Eumerella Trail Network in Anglesea. Some coastal and most rail trails in the region can be shared with walkers. Swing through the trees at Live Wire Park in Lorne or Trees Adventure near Colac. If you’re looking for more, get sky high with Tiger Moth World, 12 Apostles Helicopters or Apollo Bay Aviation. For the ultimate rush skydive above Peterborough with Skydive 12 Apostles.
