Tourist Drive 21

Free

Highly recommended

Hugging the coast of Victoria, the Great Ocean Road stretches for 243 kilometres (151 miles.)

Built between 1919 and 1932, it was constructed in memory of Australian soldiers lost during World War I, making it the world’s longest war memorial.

It is now one of Victoria’s premier tourist attractions, traversing through rainforests and beaches, including the towns of Lorne, Apollo Bay and Port Campbell.

Along the way, you’ll see the Twelve Apostles, a collection of 7 limestone stacks (wait! There aren’t 12?) some standing about 50 metres high (160 feet.)
