The Great Ocean Road is an Australian National Heritage listed
243 kilometre stretch of road along the south-eastern coast of Australia between the Victorian cities of Torquay and Warrnambool. The road was built by returned soldiers between 1919 and 1932, and is the world's largest war memorial, dedicated to casualties of World War I. It is an important tourist attraction in the region, which winds through varying terrain alongside the coast, and provides access to several prominent landmarks; including the nationally significant Twelve Apostles
limestone stack formations.
With a minimum of three day and two nights, lovers of wine have the chance to particularly the cabernet capital of Australia, the Coonawarra, to taste the red wines from the famous stretch of terra rossa soil. Tours depart from Melbourne or Adelaide and include the undiscovered treasures, hidden in and around the Great Ocean Road. These tours can take place over three, four or five days, always with fine food and wine, hosted by local experts. You will stay at premium guesthouse like Oscars or Hearns Cottage in Port Fairy and with special food experiences like Mietta's in Queenscliff or include wildlife experiences in the Grampians. Along with options to visit the fine cool climate wine regions of the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria.
