Self-Drive the Great Ocean Road

Driving the Great Ocean Road is one of the world's most scenic coastal journeys. You already know about one of the most recognised icons of Australia - The Twelve Apostles found along the route. They're an awe-inspiring sight at both dusk and dawn. Not that we encourage selfies, but if you've got to do it, there's probably not many places better to make your friends jealous. Get in Contact with us NOW to create a wonderful journey for you including this experience!

Our key to the Great Ocean Road Experience is timing how much you drive in one go and where to mix in the array of experiences in the region. Outdoor activities such as surfing, scuba diving and sea kayaking to arts, cultural and heritage attractions. Jumping out of the car to admire the stunning coastline on the Great Ocean Walk or timing the end of your day right to enjoy fine dining and local winemakers.
If your car does not have the various shades of sand found along the coast sprinkled throughout your vehicle by the end, we haven’t done our job properly.
There are some brilliant coastal villages through the trip, each offering differing qualities from surfing mecca’s to sleepy seaside ports still gathering fresh seafood from the bountiful sea at its doorstep.  Lorne, where the bush meets the beach is lovely and there are just a couple of boutique accommodation options we like to use here.  Stretching the legs for a view of some of the nearby waterfalls is well worth the stop, and a chance to take in Lorne’s spirited art scene

An absolute favourite is the historic village of Port Fairy. With terrific architecture, beautiful beaches and an assortment of restaurants, original pubs and cafes, this is the embodiment of an Australian seaside village. During the Whale watching season (May-Sep) we’ll advise you on some of the best places to see these magnificent creatures, but the surf beach at Port Fairy is a secret spot!
Enjoy the Great Ocean road, perhaps in the vehicle of your dreams?

I cannot recommend Experience Australia highly enough. The whole experience was top notch and perfect for our family. We are travelers who enjoy high end accomodations, small group tour experiences, and independent self-guided adventures. After the exchange of a few emails and a brief phone conversation, Experience Australia put together an itinerary that allowed us to experience Sydney, Great Barrier Reef, Daintree Rainforest and Uluru with just the right mix of organized small groups and independent adventures. Most importantly, they arranged stays in 6 hotels, three domestic Australian flights, airport transfers, a rental car, and about 14 tours or activities flawlessly. Our two week adventure went off without a hitch and at a price and level of service we could never have matched by booking on our own. Would not hesitate to recommend this company for your Australia travels.... READ MORE
