Welcome to Great Ocean Road

Great Ocean Road

The Great Ocean Road is one of the most scenic coastal roads you could drive on in the world. It stretches for 243 kilometres from Torquay to Geelong. There are many tours ranging from 1 day to 3 days. Other tourist landmarks along the Great Ocean Road include The Blow Holes, The Grotto, Thunder Caves and many lookout points into the Bass Strait Sea.

A popular attraction along The Great Ocean Road is the Twelve Apostles.  These are limestone stack formations just off the shores of Campbell National Park. The Apostles were formed by erosion, which stand at 45 metres high. Strangley these stacks became known as The Twelve Apostles even though there were only ever nine stacks. In July 2005 one of the stacks fell into the sea and today there remains only eight stacks. Enjoy the many walking trails or take a helicopter ride to appreciate a panoramic view.

Information & Facts


English is the official language of Australia.


The Australian Dollar (AUD) is divided into 100 cents. Banks and bureaux de change exchange most foreign currencies. Travellers cheques are also welcome everywhere, but banks take a small commission and it is better to take cheques in major currencies (e.g. US dollars or Euros) to avoid additional charges. Credit cards are widely accepted and ATMs are freely available throughout the country. Banking hours are generally 9.30am to 4pm Monday to Thursday, and 9.30am to 5pm on Friday, but some banks offer extended hours and some are open on Saturday mornings.
