Popular Attractions Along the Way

Coastal Drive

The Great Ocean Road officially extends 232 km from Torquay to Allansford. The road twists and turns throughout much of its length with cliffs on one side and ocean on the other.

London Arch

Known for years as London Bridge due to an excellent resemblance, erosion removed the end closer to shore in 1990 making it now a non-connected arch.

The Twelve Apostles

These 45-metre tall limestone pillars have probably been your mental picture of the Great Ocean Road throughout your drive here and they are as beautiful in person as you imagine them to be.
