Beginning in Torquay and traversing 243km of south-west Victoria’s coastline, the Great Ocean Road offers a diverse array of things to see and do, with many local wineries, cultural and heritage attractions, restaurants and fine walks to be enjoyed. The route winds around headlands, along cliff tops, across river estuaries and through rainforests, with memorable views throughout the drive. For many the highlight will be the much-photographed collection of rock formations known as the Twelve Apostles, which have been carved out of the headland by the fierce waves of the Southern Ocean.

"We planned the trip with Cox & Kings over an extended period and the whole experience surpassed anything that we could have imagined. We have never been treated so courteously, professionally and enthusiastically. It was truly a holiday of a lifetime."
