3 top beaches on The Great Ocean Road

Great Ocean Road

Where is Great Ocean Road?

The Great Ocean Road on Victoria’s southeast coast is one of the most famous drives in Australia, and caravanning along this stretch of pristine coastline is something you have to tick off your Australian travel bucket list.

If you plan on packing up the camper and exploring this part of the country this summer, there are some fantastic beaches you’ll pass on your travels.

Let’s take a look at three of the best.

1. Bells Beach

Arguably one of the most famous beaches in the world, Bells Beach is a surfing beach for those who are brave enough to hit the big waves that roll in here. Located next to the trendy beach town of Torquay, just over an hour from Melbourne, Bells Beach is a rugged yet beautiful spot; an exposed reef strip of coast flanked by towering clifftops. The big names in surfing often head here for competition or for practice, so maybe you’ll run into one!

2. Wye River

Wye River is a sleepy beach town located between Lorne and Apollo Bay on the Great Ocean Road and is the perfect place to stop with your camper and spend a day or two. With friendly locals and a tranquil bush backdrop, Wye River’s piece de resistance is its lengthy sandy beach with blue waters. Wye River really is a highlight of any Great Ocean Road trip.

3. Apollo Bay

In summer, the cosy beachside hamlet of Apollo Bay is swarming with visitors either passing through or calling the town home for a while, and the beach is the place to be. Apollo Bay’s beach spans 3km and is ideal for swimming, surfing, lazing in the sun, fishing and more. You’ll never want to leave.
