Victoria Touring Routes Attractions

Great Ocean Road
• Whilst you can commence your touring route from Geelong or even Melbourne, the Great Ocean Road tourism drive start from Torquay and winds some 243 km along the south-western coastline of Victoria to Allansford, just east of Warrnambool, although the drive officially ends at Warrnambool. This scenic drive takes in rugged cliffs, windswept beaches and tall bluffs, passing through towering eucalypts and lush rainforest, as well as some idyllic and interesting towns along the way.

One of the interesting sections of the drive is the Port Campbell National Park, where tourist can see a collection of amazing limestone sculptures, that include the Twelve Apostles, London Bridge and Loch Ard Gorge. Originally the Twelve Apostles name applied to 13 limestone stacks, although only eight of them can be seen from the main viewing platforms. Number nine limestone stack crumbled on its own in 2005.
Shipwreck Coast
• Stretching some 130 km, from Port Fairy to Cape Otway and Moonlight Head, the "Shipwreck Coast" is an accessible coastline that overlaps with one of the most spectacular coastal drives in the world, Victoria's "Great Ocean Road". This magnificent drive winds along the south-western coast of Victoria, around rugged cliffs, windswept beaches and tall bluffs, passing through towering eucalypts and lush rainforest. This drive also follows a coastline with over 700 known shipwrecks, of which only 200 of them have been discovered, hence the "Shipwreck Coast".

There are currently 25 sites along the Historic Shipwreck Trail that have been sign-posted, leading to information plaques that over look the cliffs where the wrecks occurred.
