The ruggedly majestic scenery of the southeastern coast is on spectacular display as you embark on Australia's most iconic coastal drive—the Great Ocean Road. Spend 2 days taking it all in, from seaside towns to world-famous surf breaks and windswept rock formations rearing up from the waves.

Day 1 Ride from Melbourne to the beachfront village of your choice, either beautiful Lorne or lively Apollo Bay. Spend the next 24 hours at your leisure. You can lounge on the beach, hike around Cape Otway, or enjoy the seaside vibe at shops and restaurants in town.

Day 2 Set out for an unforgettable drive along the Great Ocean Road. This National Heritage-listed highway spans 151 miles (243 km), traversing gorgeous coastal terrain and breathtaking natural features.

Pass under the Memorial Arch—commemorating the veterans who built the road after World War I—and look out over the sandy expanse of Sunnymeade Beach from Urquhart Bluff. Stretch your legs with a walk to a cliff-top viewing area at the Twelve Apostles, where wave-sculpted, limestone stacks rise out of the emerald waters of the Southern Ocean.

At Loch Ard Gorge, learn why this stretch of shore is called the Shipwreck Coast as you listen to the harrowing tale of a vessel that ran aground here in 1878. Curving inland to Great Otway National Park, ride by the towering beech trees and cascading waterfalls of the hinterland. Stop at the London Arch, which was known as the London Bridge until the rock connecting it to the shore collapsed into the sea.

Finally, arrive in Port Campbell. This colorful seaside village is full of boutiques, galleries, and plenty of cafes to check out before your return trip to Melbourne.
