Great Ocean Road

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.

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.

Amazing getaway

5 of 5
We had the most amazing time at Johanna. The cottages are beautiful - very well maintained and clean. The pet friendly accommodation suited us to tea and the daily walks to the beach were an added bonus. Can't recommend enough! Great for a peaceful and relaxing break away from the city!

Beautiful & relaxing

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Excellent accommodation and perfect place to unwind and recharge the batteries. Excellent and quiet location to shops, beach and nearby towns. Thank you for opening this home to our two dogs - they had a ball!
