    Jan Juc For Superb Holidays

    Along the Great Ocean Road in Victoria lies the wonderful holiday destination of Jan Juc. There is no need to wonder what exciting things can be done here; it is easier to say what can’t be done! Indeed, there is such a diversity of sightseeing venues, things to do, and a wide choice of holiday accommodation in Jan Juc, that people return year after year to keep on exploring.

    Getting Started

    After taking a day or two to recover from the journey, for those who come in from out of the country, it is now time to try the surfing along Jan Juc Beach itself. Being south of Torquay, the waves here are likely to be one and a half metres high. The beach extends for one point two metres and faces south so there is always a chance of large waves.

    One end of the beach is full of sand dunes while the other is backed by cliffs that soar up to twenty metres high. Since there are several rip tides in the area, the life saving club is usually busy keeping an eye on surfers and swimmers so do take care to follow the flags and instructions all the time. Even those who fish the beach from the northern end must be aware of the rip holes.

    One great way to get some exercise in is to climb up to Cape Otway Light Station. This is the oldest lighthouse on the mainland and stands a full ninety metres tall. This is an extremely rugged coastline so visitors get an exceptional view from the top which could include passing whales. It could be a good idea to get accommodation in Cape Otway since it really is at the centre of all the main tourist attractions. Great Otway National Park is not far away and here where visitors can interact with the indigenous wildlife included the cute koalas.

    Otway Fly Treetop Adventures also offers a cool Tree Top walk and Zip Line experience. This is the highest and longest walkway standing at six hundred metres long and it is thirty five metres up so there are many things to see from way up there. For adrenalin junkies, try zipping over the treetops on the line provided to get a bird’s eye view of everything below. This experience needs to be pre-booked though to avoid disappointment.

    The Great Ocean Walk stretches along one hundred and four kilometres of pristine coastline and is not to be missed. When booking holiday accommodation, it may be a good idea to book transport too so that the whole Walk can be traversed from several points. Accommodation is also available in many different places so this could be part of a self organized tour of the area.

    Not too far away in Torquay lies the Surf World Museum. Of course, Australia is renowned for its surfing and here there are artifacts and exhibitions which lead the visitor through Australia’s surfing heritage. Great for those who love the sport or for those who want to give it a try. Drop in on Bells Beach too since this is classed as the country’s best surf spot. Not so much beach to speak of but stupendous surf!

    A ride out to the Adventure Park in Wallington will certainly get the kids attention. Amongst the forest are dinosaurs, a mini golf course, pick-your-own fruit farms, animal sanctuaries and a giant maze amongst other attractions. Round this all off with a few museums, a vintage train ride and a horse riding tour into the bush and everyone will go back to their holiday rental absolutely exhausted!

    Where to Stay

    All along this coast there are many different forms of accommodation in Jan Juc and other places; homely little bed and breakfast venues, serviced apartments or private rental holiday homes etc to suit just about every pocket. As already mentioned, The Great Ocean Walk is a magnificent place to drop in and out of different accommodation while traversing the coastline for one hundred kilometers. For those who enjoy camping or caravanning, there are venues dotted around everywhere too.

    Will it Rain?

    The best time to be in Jan Juc must be between November and April with January and February probably being the warmest months. It never gets really cold here, by UK standards, but it can be a little crisp in their winter which is June to August. This just means keeping arms covered with light clothing and not the heavy duty coats that the Brits are used to back home.

    How To Get There

    From the UK, most international carriers will now have special deals to Australia. Indeed, until recently, a ticket would cost around one thousand pounds. However, with the recent introduction of passenger tax, this has increased by ten percent. Flights are out of Heathrow and will land in Melbourne or Victoria where transfers are easily booked for the onward journey. Book all this before arrival to cut down on any unforeseen problems reaching your holiday home in Jan Jac and your much awaited treat..
