Over five million people annually drive along the Great Ocean Road. Superlatives fail to explain the experience of winding along incredible coastlines, marveling at stunning rock formations, weaving beneath canopies of thick forests and visiting quaint seaside towns. Great Ocean Road is justifiably ranked among the top drives in the world. You can travel the 151 miles of Highway Route B100 in one day. However, savoring the scenery warrants far more time. The best advice is to start in Torquay and head west towards Warrnambool because most of the turn-offs, lookout points and shoreline will be on your left (the same direction you drive in Australia).
