Overview

National parks & reserves

Observe deserted coastlines with towering limestone stacks and immense sand dunes, ancient rainforests and old volcanoes in national parks and reserves in the Great Ocean Road region.

Coastal parks

Pounded by wild seas and fierce winds, the coastlines of the Port Campbell National Park and Bay of Islands Coastal Park have been sculpted over millions of years to become some of the most breathtakingly beautiful natural areas in the world. Further down the coast, the Discovery Bay Coastal Park is a majestic 50-kilometre sweep of ocean beach, huge dunes and coastal lakes.

Under the waves

The pristine waters off Victoria's south coast make for incredible diving opportunities. Dive the Twelve Apostles Marine National Park and explore the underwater structures beneath the limestone stacks and see reef fish, sea spiders, colourful sponge gardens and all kinds of crustaceans. Marengo Reefs Marine Sanctuary off the coast of Apollo Bay is also a diver's playground, alive with zebra fish, seals, soft corals and kelp forests. 

Rainforest and inland parks

Some of Australia's best rainforest scenery can be found in the Great Otway National Park. See ancient mossy trees, cool fern gullies, waterfalls and a coast of tall cliffs and sandy beaches. Visit Lower Glenelg National Park for stunning river scenery, including a spectacular 15-kilometre long gorge, and the Princess Margaret Rose Cave.
