Come prepared with extra shoes, for walking and for the beach (if you are keen on dipping your toes in the water). A poncho will be useful for emergency rainy situation, or a hat for sunny days. There are water coolers for refills in front...More

We truly enjoyed the drive, the amazing shoreline, the change in native flora and fauna. Nice little towns to stop in for lunch and a little shopping. I would caution anyone to be watchful of the many tourists drifting right as they drive.

We drove from Melbourne to Apollo Bay along the Great Ocean Road. This would have to be one of the best drives in the country. We intended coming back inland, but we enjoyed the drive down so much we came back to Melbourne on the...More

Shespice, please see my recent GOR evaluation to more details. Your plan seems good, but when planning the trip, consider that main lookouts are around the 12 apostoles. As you have two days, choose the most sunny day to go... More

Hi Elise, The closest town to the Apostles is Port Campbell which is about an 8 hour drive from Adelaide. I think 3 days would be a push: a day to drive, a day to look around, a day to drive home. You might be better staying... More

There is a parking lot at the Apostles and then you can have a walk around for about 5 minutes to see all the Apostles.
