If you have some extra time while visiting Melbourne, definitely take a road trip on the Great Ocean Road. You can either rent your own vehicle or campervan or take a one day guided tour from Melbourne.
Spectacular scenery and cute little coastal towns are scattered along the road as well as some of the best surfing beaches in the world.
We visited Torquay (Bells Beach – home of many worldwide surfing competitions), Anglesea, Otway National Park, Port Campbell, Warnnambool and the actual cliff grazing road itself was amazing.
The highlight of the trip was seeing the Twelve Apostles, immense rock structures that are carved with the wind and waves (only 9 are currently remaining) dotted along the coastline. A “must see” when you are in the area!
And if you have the time, try and see it during the day, as well as sunset. Although the sunset we experienced was breathtaking, the early day light reveals the natural beauty of the apostles as well.
