Well worth the time to schedule this road trip into your holiday. Easy drive with lots of pullovers and view points. Best if you go the direction that puts you in the outside view lane.

The Great Ocean Road is back in business. Nice to see after the terrible bushfires stopped travellers visiting the region.

The museum is part of the tourist information centre in Lorne, access is good, so too is wheel chair access. The museum is very well done, it highlights the remoteness of the area at the time, the vision by those who conceived it, the need...More

Well presented. Very hard for tall folks to enjoy as quite a few exhibits are very low to the ground. Worth a visit though.
