There are so many amazing places to see and visit on the Great Ocean Road,
so it is hard to choose. That`s why it is great to have recommendations. Let´s continue with Campbell´s favourites.

 The Great Ocean Walk

This is a 100 km dedicated walking track that follows the coast line from Apollo Bay to the 12 Apostles. You can access plenty of sections and do day trips to explore the beautiful coast line up close. Why not start from the start? At Marengo Caravan Park you can sample the start of the track by heading through the camp ground and enjoying walking on several beaches as you head for the Otways. An easy out and back option to give you a taste for more.

7. Crayfish Bay

Crayfish Bay is a uniquely protected slice of beach heaven on the rugged, exposed, battered shipwreck coast. Park at Cape Otway Lighthouse and walk 1 km back towards Apollo Bay on the Great Ocean Walk (the track starts just behind the toilets). This slice of paradise is a great place to spend the day so pack a picnic and a book.

    8. Melanesia Beach

This isn’t for everyone, a 5 km steep walk down to a pristine untouched beach means there is a steep 5 km return to the car. I believe it is worth it. On low tide there are incredible rock pools that are protected from big dangerous surf. If the March flies are out in force, head 100 m up the creek and picnic on the lawn.


9. Aire River Campground

A beautiful campground set on a stunning river filled with bird life and easy access to the beach and walking tracks. This is not far from the road but feels serenely isolated, especially in the quieter months. The Great Ocean Walk track heads in both directions, with the walk from here to Castle Cove being one of my all-time favourites.


10. 
Peterborough for Sunset

The official end of the Great Ocean Road. Unfortunately many tourists choose to turn around at Port Campbell, however just 8 km further down the coast will get you to Peterborough, the best kept secret on the Great Ocean Road. Make sure you enjoy an ocean sunset (rare in Victoria) at Worm Bay looking over the Bay of Islands Coastal Park.

I hope you have enjoyed this post as much as I did! Great Ocean Road is definitely must visit in Australia and thank you Campbell for your favourite places!
