Great Ocean Road is one of the most scenic coastal drives in the world.

The Great Ocean Road is 243 kilometres along the coast of Victoria. The road stretches from Torquay to Allansford. To go from one end to the other can take almost 10 hours. So, it can be a jam pack day full of sightseeing and driving. Many Victorians explore parts of the Great Ocean Road. But it can take days to explore and learn about the Great Ocean Road. There are one day and two day tours that show you the best parts of the Great Ocean Road.

What can I see on the Great Ocean Road in a day?

If you only have one day on the Great Ocean Road, you will be able to see the most popular attractions. Some of the attractions you can explore are Memorial Arch, 12 Apostles, and Loch Ard Gorge. You can also explore the coastal towns of Lorne and Apollo Bay. Or for an active day, you can even go for a walk through the Otway Rainforest. In this rainforest, you can view waterfalls and spot wildlife.

What can I see on the Great Ocean Road in two days?

Two days on the Great Ocean Road is a perfect way to see more than you can explore in one day. London Bridge, Loch Ard Gorge and the 12 Apostles. Gibson Steps, the Bay of Martyrs, and The Grotto are other popular sights on the Great Ocean Road and a visit worth. The best time to view these popular attractions are during sunrise or sunset. You can go to Logans Beach in Warrnambool. During winter you might be able to spot some whales. Or watch the surfers ride the waves all year round.

Another must see is Tower Hill, which is now an extinct volcano. It’s a great area to spot Aussie wildlife. Walk through Maits Rest Rainforest if you feel like some exercise. There is a board that shows you the route through the rainforest. The walk takes around 30 minutes to complete. A trip along the Great Ocean Road isn’t complete without a visit to Apollo Bay. This coastal town is one of the more known places on the Great Ocean Road.

Bells Beach is a very famous surfing beach. So, if you’re a surfer, it’s a must-visit. But if you want to watch people surf, Bells Beach is the place to be. You will be able to visit all these places within two days and explore some of the towns.

Travelling on the Great Ocean Road will be an unforgettable experience! Whether it’s for a quick one day adventure or across two days.
