Overview

Family activities

Drive through the Great Ocean Road region with the kids and find a wide range of fun activities, both indoors and out. Choose from an abundance of spectacular natural attractions, vivid local histories and adventure playgrounds to explore. You'll be sure to find something to keep the little 'uns happy and entertained, and that means more time for you to put your feet up.

Maritime mysteries

All down the coast, the history of the Great Ocean Road is alive with tales of terrible shipwrecks, colonial struggles and maritime mysteries. Learn about the region's colourful heritage at lighthouses and museums across the region. Visit the Flagstaff Maritime Village on the shipwreck coast, look out over the raging Southern Ocean from the Cape Otway Lightstation, or hear the story of the Loch Ard Shipwreck near Port Campbell in 1878.

Nature's way

The best way to see the region's abundant marine life is to get out on the water. Join a tour and see dolphins at play, seals lazing about on the coast and local birdlife up close. Come between June and October and watch out along the coast for southern right whales and blue whales. For a bird's eye of view of the mighty Otway National Park, make the trip through temperate rainforest and climb the steps of the Otway Fly.
