The Great Ocean Road is the dramatic coastline region drive from Greater Melbourne in Victoria. An Australian National Heritage road stretching 243 km, the spectacular coastline includes stunning surf beaches, golden sands, mountain ranges, rainforests and national parks.
Whether you swim, surf, kayak or want to experience the charm of historic fishing villages and ports, Turu has more than 60 Great Ocean Road holiday or tourist parks, camping grounds and cabins listed for every type of traveller.
The Great Ocean Road (did you know it was built by soldiers who had returned from World War I) offers so many holiday choices — from family-friendly swimming or spotting ship wrecks near Port Fairy to whale watching in Warrnambool or surfing at Bells Beach.
Numerous wineries are also dotted all along the sprawling coastal stretch of road, as are sumptuous seafood restaurants, with great local produce and dining available everywhere. No wonder the Great Ocean Road is a rightly considered one of the world’s best road trips.
So when you plan your next visit to Victoria and the Great Ocean Road, make sure you visit Turu before you go.
