Great Ocean Road

The Great Ocean Road is a 243 kilometres or 151 mile long stretch of road that connects the Victorian cities of Torquay and Warrnambool. The road was built between 1919 and 1932 by returned soldiers and is the world’s largest war memorial dedicated to the casualties of World War I. The road is an important tourist spot in the region and has many accommodations where holiday makers can spend the night.

Accommodations

There are plenty of holiday rentals available in the many towns and villages that you come across while driving down the Great Ocean Road. Spend the night listening to the sound of waves crashing into the cliffs in a holiday home or take a gander at the stunning view available from the window of your holiday apartment.

Attractions

The biggest attractions along the Great Ocean Road are the 12 Apostles. These limestone cliffs were formed millions of years ago and now stand about 45 metres above the waves. View then at sunrise and sunset and you will notice that the change colour from dark and foreboding to a brilliant sandy yellow.

If you are on the lookout for something different, then head over to the Flagstaff Hill Maritime Village and Shipwrecked Sound and Laser Show.

Beautiful cottage, relaxing stay

We had a great time staying in the cottage despite the weather! Enjoyed the fireplace which kept the whole place warm. Short trip into town and close to Great ocean road attractions.
