This famous coastal drive can be done in a day, but we recommend spending at least two to three nights here to make the most of a truly unforgettable location.
This is the ultimate self-drive destination; stop to snap the breathtaking views and sample the local cuisine. Visit the towering 12 Apostles geological site; wander Flagstaff Hill Maritime Village and learn why this stretch is called the ‘Shipwreck Coast of Victoria’; catch some amazing waves at Bells Beach; or take in the marvellous views at Loch Ard Gorge.
Wildlife lovers will also find plenty to enjoy on this drive:
- seals and
can all be spotted along the way.
The Tower Hill Wildlife Reserve is set inside an inactive volcano and offers amazing views as well as the opportunity to glimpse an array of Australian wildlife, including wallabies, emus, echidnas and native birds.
The drive starts in Torquay, Victoria, and ends in Port Fairy; you can drive down from Melbourne (via Geelong), or travel by ferry from Sorrento on the Mornington Peninsula to Queenscliff. This amazing drive could also be part of a self-drive adventure between Melbourne and Adelaide.
