DIY -- Great Ocean Road?

Recommended Posts

Will be on the Solstice in February/March 2020.  Thinking of doing the Great Ocean Road on our own upon completion of the cruise.  We will be a group of 6-8 people departing from Melbourne.   Any insight (cars, hotels, etc), tips, info, experiences would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

You need at least two full days, preferably three, to do the Great Ocean Road. The real value is all the places that you can stop at along the way, and you can't do that if you only have enough time to drive to the end and back again before it gets dark.

Having driven the GOR myself, I agree that you need at least 3 days to do it properly.  A good itinerary can be found on the following link with Day 1 ending in Apollo Bay, Day 2 ending in Port Fairy (or Warrnambool) and Day 3 being the inland drive back to Melbourne from Port Fairy.
