Feel the wind in your hair with a road trip down the Great Ocean Road
ROAD TRIP: OCEAN ROAD
Among Australia’s many bucket list destinations, sits the rugged wonder that is the Great Ocean Road. This 240 kilometre stretch between Victoria’s Torqay and Allansford is home to wild cliffs and beloved surf breaks, alongside a cluster of coastal communities that are well worth your time and attention (we promise). You won’t regret a roadtrip along its length, paying a visit to these memorable towns and landmarks - we suggest the following itinerary.
Kick off in Torquay, home to the famed surfing mecca that is Bells Beach. If you’re inclined for a paddle this is the place to do it, but that’s not all that there is to do around these parts. Torquay is full of adventure opportunities thanks to its proximity to The Point Addis Marine National Park. It’s here you’ll find bushwalking trails and secluded beaches galore. Food options aren’t lacking around Torquay either, but it’s the tipple department where the town is flourishing, with a rising number of breweries and distilleries like Great Ocean Road Distillery and Sou’West Brewery.
LORNE On to the equally idyllic Lorne, just under an hour’s drive away, where you’ll find what is fast becoming a food-favouring destination. This chilled out coastal town is set to welcome the next outpost of Italian eatery Totti’s from the ever-popular Merivale Group. It’s also within the adored Lorne Bowls Club that lauded chef Jo Barrett has just introduced her own venture Little Picket, a place to snack pre- or post- a good old fashioned game of bowls. The beaches are beautiful around here too - don’t forget to take a dip at Lorne’s main beach, and a wander down its much loved pier.
PORT FAIRY En route to your next town on your Great Ocean Road adventure you’ll come across the iconic 12 Apostles. These pillars were formed from limestone some 10 to 20 million years ago and make for an unforgettable site - they’re best viewed from Teddy’s Lookout. Continue on along the coastline and you’ll greet Port Fairy within the hour. This picturesque fishing village is rife with historic cottages and churches. Spend the night here, or backtrack for an evening in Warrnambool (just 30 or so minutes away) where you’ll find Victoria’s first hot springs hotel, Hot Springs Sanctuary.
