Discover colossal rock stacks rising alongside Victoria’s Great Ocean Road on a self-drive tour
Travel in Victoria, Australia's southernmost mainland state, is astoundingly diverse. Within its boundaries lie 35 national parks that encompass every possible terrain you can imagine. You can travel to Victoria’s rainforests, its mountain ranges, the sun-baked outback and along its coastline, where waves crash dramatically onto rugged sandstone.
Melbourne, the state’s capital, is full of cosmopolitan streets that are lined with trendy restaurants. You can hop on its iconic trams to explore the Victorian architecture and vibrant arts scene. Sports fans may wish to time their visit to coincide with rugby or cricket tournaments and, of course, Melbourne is the home of the Australian Grand Prix.
Take a drive out of the city, however, and one of Victoria’s top attractions awaits. The Great Ocean Road offers a clifftop coastal drive that is unsurpassed. We’ll arrange a hire car and bespoke self-drive itinerary that shows off the best of the coastline. Don’t miss the 12 Apostles, a dozen dramatic rock stacks that rise like sentinels from the crests of the Southern Ocean.
If you have a little more time available, we can also arrange tours inland to the mountains of the Grampians National Park or to the vast pink lakes and red sand dunes of Mildura. Whatever itinerary you choose, you're guaranteed to find wild adventure and awe-inspiring scenery with a tailor-made holiday to this diverse Australian state.
