My sister and I took a day trip out along the Great Ocean Road on a trip to Melbourne in February 2017. The roads were great, easy to follow and the different stone arch & formation attractions along the road are amazing. Definitely worth visiting...More

A gorgeous 4.5 hour drive to the 12 apostles. The drive passes by Bells Beach, a popular surfing spot, and the less popular but no less beautiful fairhaven beach. I recommend timing it to reach the 12 apostles around sunset, the view is breathtaking! You...More

When they say Great Ocean Road, they mean it! Unspoiled beauty at its best with friendly people all along the way. Make a day or two off it and take your time. Absolutely stunning views.

If you want to see some awesome cliffs, rock formations and waterfalls, this is a must see! The Twelve Apostles, London Bridge, Loch Ard, Gibson Steps...etc. And unless it is absolutely pouring down with rain, (which is better to see the waterfalls) we would recommend...More

Hi Elise, The closest town to the Apostles is Port Campbell which is about an 8 hour drive from Adelaide. I think 3 days would be a push: a day to drive, a day to look around, a day to drive home. You might be better staying... More

There is a parking lot at the Apostles and then you can have a walk around for about 5 minutes to see all the Apostles.

which is the best town to stay for a nite along GOR from Melbourne to Twelve Apostles? I have 2 or 3 nites for this route, 2adults and 2kids (7years old and 4 years old). we are coming to GOR from Philip Island. Is Torquay a nice place for overnite? or Geelong? or drive further to Anglesea or Apollo Bay? Apollo Bay is a bit too far from Philip Island, we will have to rush to arrive before sunset (winter: by 5pm?). The next town to stay would be Port Campbell or Warrnambool? after this, we will go to Healesville. We are concerned about snacks/foods and washrooms along the way. where should we stock in the foods? is it convenient to buy from stores (eg IGA express) along the way?
