Overview

Getting here & around

Travelling by car from Melbourne

The Great Ocean Road is a one-and-a-half-hour drive from the heart of Melbourne with dual lane highway conditions for most of the journey and excellent signposting.

Travel via the Princes Highway over the West Gate Bridge to the bayside city of Geelong. From here you can take the Surf Coast Highway to the famous surf town of Torquay. For over 400 kilometres, from Torquay to Nelson on the South Australian border, the Great Ocean Road provides some of the most impressive coastal scenery in Australia.

Alternatively, take the inland route by following the Princes Highway from Geelong to Warrnambool past rich farmland and picturesque country towns.

Air services

Avalon Airport is conveniently located between Melbourne and Geelong and operates services by most airlines from most Australian cities. Sharp Airlines operates flights between Portland and Melbourne's Essendon airport daily.

Other transport options

V/Line runs frequent train services from Southern Cross Station in Melbourne to Geelong and Warrnambool. V/Line coach services operate from Geelong via the Great Ocean Road to Apollo Bay and Warrnambool, and from Warrnambool to Port Fairy and Portland.
