1. It starts with a world-class city
Most visitors to the Great Ocean Road will begin their adventure in Australia's greatest city (we may be biased). Melbourne is the logical jumping-off point for most Victorian road trips, and it's only an hour and a half from Torquay – the official start of the Great Ocean Road. Soak up the city atmosphere with a strong coffee and gourmet brunch, then hit the road.
