While the coastal road and its breath-taking views (best enjoyed mid-week during non-peak periods) will dominate your ride, be prepared to be blown away as you round bends and turns into lush inland pastures, dramatic rainforests, magnificent lakes, volcanic craters and steep sand dunes.
Get a unique perspective of the seaside resort towns and historic villages as you pedal through surfy Torquay, upmarket Lorne and alternative Port Fairy. We’ll set you up with the best places to rest your legs and enjoy the local fare.
Take advantage of the well-maintained rail trails around the region, which offer superb whistlestop history lessons of the region. Complete entire trails or opt for sections of the routes according to your ability and inclination.
The Old Beechy Rail Trail is the most well known, but you can also explore the Birregurra - Forrest 'Tiger' Rail Trail, Port Fairy to Warrnambool Rail Trail and the Camperdown to Timboon (Coast to Crater) Rail Trail.
If you’d prefer to ditch the skinny tyres and lycra and get off road in the majestic scenery surrounding the Great Ocean Road and its hinterland, then you’ve found the right area.
Off-road cyclists are spoilt for choice in the Great Ocean Road, with purpose-built mountain bike tracks and undulating terrain criss-crossing the region. Check out the Forrest Trails, over 40 kilometres of mountain bike tracks created through bush terrain in the Great Otway National Park. Pass through tall eucalypt forests and dense fern gullies for a snapshot of the stunning Otway Ranges.
