Superb. Make sure you allocate enough time to visit this gem. I saw a lot of people join 1 day bus tours to see everything in one day, but then have a full weeke in Melbourne. That’s not very sensible. I’d allocate at least 2...More
I am so amazed by this beautiful creations God has made. Words can’t even describe the beauty on this entire drive. We rented a car and did the self drive and it was so worth it! There is so much to do and see, but...More
Bay of Islands:
Just one of the many beautiful stops along the Great Ocean Road. Crowds and flies can be a bit trying, but worth it nonetheless. Easy walking access and multiple lookouts. Parking nearby but it can get full in peak times.
In order to realize how a beautiful environment can influence the self in a positive way, we undertook our travel in the Great Ocean Road towards west from Melbourne, by car. Our travel (covering a total distance of more than 350 Km one way) from...More
We took a private two day tour. It was fantastic. I feel sorry for anyone who rushes down here on a one day tour. Even worse on one of those packed tour buses. No thanks. My tip - either self drive, private tour or DECENT...More
If you're looking for a nice beach to go to while you're in Victoria, The Great Ocean Road is bound to have it.
Travelling through Anglesea, Torquay, Lorne, Ocean Grove and more, there are many beautiful spots to be found along the road.
Great drive if you take the time to stop along the way. If looking for something to do between beach days definitely visit the waterfalls and light house. We made the trek with 2 toddlers on our backs and manage to visit the 3 main...More
Though I’d been to Australia many times for business, I’d never ventured beyond Melbourne’s Central Business District. But this year, the timing worked to take a two-day tour of the Great Ocean Road. Right from the start, Jeremy Redmond and his team at Natural Treasures...More

Actually, we used our car for this trip and did not hire a bike. I did not see anyone cycling on this road but I saw lots of motobikes. That said, the great ocean road can be a challenging trip for ordinary road cyclists because of the sharp bends and some dips; however, the scenery is amazing and encouraging. So, it comes back to your personal preference.

Basically all of what has been said so far is great. A slight detour if you want that is only 15 km in and then 15 km back is a visit to Timboon that has a lovely distillery and ice cream place. Just a nice little detour inland. Also Port Fairy is good. We have been both ways along the Great ocean road. Make sure you take all the little detours into London Bridge, Loch Ard, Bay of Islands, the Grotto, etc. all well signposted on the main road, all only a bout 800m off the road. Fantastic views.

As the others already said Great Ocean Road and Sydney are in opposite directions and is up to you how far away you want to drive. We drove for around 300km direction Adelaide just a bit more west from Port Campbell- shall count with 3-4 nights if you want to enjoy the road and the area around. On the way back we drove through Colac then A1 and finally M1 and then the ring and didn't enter the city of Melbourne. You can then chose a place to stay over night depending which way you want to drive towards Sydney. There two options - either along the Ocean or through the mountains. We drove along the ocean and slept one night close to Warragul. Then you can continue direction ocean and Lakes Entrance or something south of it.
