One of Australia's most visited attractions, the Great Ocean Road is renowned for its impressive scenery and rugged coastline. It meanders along the coast of the Southern Ocean between pristine beaches with rugged rock outcrops, and the Otway Ranges, and passes through the Angahook-Lorne State Park and Otway State Forest.
The area is rich in attractions but perhaps the most enigmatic is Port Campbell National Park with 'The 12 Apostles' which are a spectacular collection of eroded sandstone outcrops, 'The Grotto', 'London Bridge', and 'Loch Ard Gorge', named for the ship wrecked there in the last century.
LOCATION: The Great Ocean Road (B100) begins near Torquay, 100 km. (60 miles) west of Melbourne, where the name changes from the Surfcoast Highway, and follows the coastline for several hundred kilometers to Warrnambool where it rejoins the Princes Highway (National Highway 1).
And if you are really keen to explore the Great South Coast, then check out further information from Visitor Information Centres along the way.
Come and experience the Shipwrecked Coast for yourself.
