Overview

Nature & wildlife

Visit the Great Ocean Road and marvel at some of the most beautiful natural attractions in Australia, from ancient rainforests, volcanic plains and iconic wildlife to towering limestone cliffs, sandy beaches and marine reserves teeming with life.

Rugged coastal scenery

Discover the dramatic rock sculptures of the 12 Apostles and the mystical Bay of Islands in Port Campbell National Park. Choose from the many viewing points along the Great Ocean Road and take in spectacular vistas of the Southern Ocean. For a closer look at the pristine natural environment, dive beneath the waves at marine parks and reserves along the coast.

Walk in nature along the breathtaking Great Ocean Walk from Apollo Bay to the 12 Apostles. Watch southern right whales from the shoreline at the nursery in Warrnambool. Traverse the Surf Coast Walk, from Torquay to Lorne, and take in the rich ochre of the Bells Beach cliffs, forests of leafy green eucalypts and the deep blue of Bass Strait.

Rainforests and volcanic plains

See some of Australia's best rainforest scenery in the Great Otway National Park. Walk among tall trees and giant tree ferns, discover beautiful waterfalls, see the Melba Gully glow worms, or just meander on secluded beaches along the shore at Cape Otway. Experience the Otway Fly tree top walk with breathtaking views and abundant plant and birdlife.

Make your way further inland to explore the rolling hills, lakes and valleys of Victoria’s ancient volcanic plains, the third largest in the world.

Australian native wildlife

See koalas, kangaroos and emus at a beautiful wildlife haven nestled inside an extinct volcano at Tower Hill. Play a round of golf with kangaroos in Anglesea or take a canoe trip to view platypus in the wild on a beautiful mountain lake in the Otway Ranges. Stop in at Kennett River, one of the best places in Australia to see koalas in the wild.
