The Great Ocean Road, Torquay
(4.8/5 based on 5,500+ reviews on the web)
Take an astonishingly beautiful drive along The Great Ocean Road. Returned soldiers from World War I built this 243 km (151 mi) stretch of seaside road between Torquay and Allansford as a tribute to fallen servicemen, and it now sits as the world's largest war memorial. Stop at lookouts for views over the ocean, and leave extra time to admire 12 Apostles, mammoth rock stacks that rise up from the Southern Ocean just offshore from cliffs that plunge to a pristine beach. Make The Great Ocean Road part of your personalized Torquay itinerary using our Torquay family vacation planner.
