Driving along the Great Ocean Rd is lovely. Beautiful ocean views, cute surf towns and a lot of places to stop and take photos.

The Great Ocean Road is an amazing sight which must be seen! The 12 Apostles, of which there are only 9, are magnificent and really unique to see. The drive down from Melbourne is long, but once you're there, it really is worth it.

Try getting to the 12th Apostles just before sunset. The view and the colours are spectacular!!! :)
Hi all, what are some of the accommodation recommendations for Halls Gap for 2 pax? We're travelling end Oct and it seems a lot of places are already booked up... Below is our tentative itinerary, appreciate your suggestions/recommendations for improvements! Day 1: Arrive in Melbourne 08:50, head to the CBD and stay the night in the city Day 2: Pick up rental car and set out for the GOR, stay 1 night at Port Campbell Day 3: Continue on GOR, stay the night at Warrnambool Day 4: Explore Port Fairy and head to Grampians in the afternoon for a short hike, stay the night at Halls Gap or Port Fairy? Day 5: Explore Grampians, stay the night at Halls Gap Day 6: Return to Melbourne (should we take the inland road or back on the GOR?) Days 7-9: Explore Melbourne Any recommendations on budget car rental companies would be appreciated as well :) Thank you!
