Melbourne to Lorne
(From the city to the ocean)
Tip – remember that Australians drive on the left hand side of the road
The Great Otway National Park
Tip – It will be hard to spot a koala in the trees but if you keep a look out for cars and groups of tourists on the side of the road then that’s a sure sign that koalas are close by.
Tip = Although there are plenty of nice hotels in the towns along the Great Ocean Road, if you are looking at getting up close to the local wildlife, try and stay in a cabin in one of the many resorts nestled in the forests.
The Road to the Twelve Apostles
(The road hugs the ocean and the forest )
Tip – the scenery is spectacular so try and stop and take it all in as much as you can
