The Great Ocean Road is a 151 mile Australian National Heritage stretch of road that runs along the south-eastern coast of Australia (Surf Coast and Shipwreck Coast) between Torquay and Allansford. The road was constructed between 1919 and 1932 and dedicated to soldiers who died during World War I. The road winds through the coastline and provides access to several prominent landmarks, including the Twelve Apostles limestone stack formations. Along the road ate the 12 Apostles and other prominent tourist landmarks. A very worthwhile drive which takes several hours driving at a leisurely pace. there are plenty of picnic opportunities and many photo opportunities. The speed limits vary between 50 and 100 km along the route.

Lots of beaches and coves to call in at. Some have stairs to go down to the beach. If you are unable to negotiate those there is generally spots to look out from in the car parks.
Leave a good few hours as there are many coves and beaches to investigate. Also work out when the tide is on the way out so that you can see the beaches more clearly.
Generally plenty of parking.

Make sure you allocate a couple of hours so you can truly enjoy this spectacular part of the coast, stopping at all of the beach lookouts and just enjoy life and the majestic waves

This drive takes you from one beautiful beach to another. Photo opportunies galore. Most people don't stop long enough to go for a walk along many of them, so you may have a beach all to yourself.
