Inland or Coastal, whichever route you choose, make sure to check out
our top tips on where to stop along the way!

Coastal road from Melbourne

With the sound of the ringing tram bells in the distance, head south-west towards Geelong on the M1 and continue to Torquay on the B100 for a total of 1 hour 20 minutes and let your Great Ocean Road Journey begin. Allow yourself 5 hours driving time if taking the 296km coastal route and please make sure to factor in additional time for sightseeing, shopping and visiting the local Visitor Information Centre for an enhanced Great Ocean Road Experience.

 

 

Inland road from Melbourne

Follow the M1 towards Geelong and continuing on the A1 to Port Campbell via Colac. You’ll save yourself some time, driving only 230km in under 3 hours. Take in the sights of Australia’s largest Volcanic Plain and arrive in town in time for Sunset and dinner. Get up early and see the magnificent 12 Apostles upon Sunrise, who knows, you may be the only person there!
