Is it worth it to do a road trip at the Great Ocean Road in Australia?
Question

We are a young British couple considering a holiday in Australia next year. It might require lots of planning so we are starting to do some research. We want to experience our first roadtrip in Australia. Is it worth it to do a road trip at the Great Ocean Road in Australia? We will be first-timers in Australia.

Deciding whether you should take a trip at the Great Ocean Road will firstly depend on what else is on your itinerary as very often, you will be enjoying similar sceneries in other parts of Australia. 

 

Is the Great Ocean Road dangerous?

The Great Ocean Road can be dangerous if you’re not used to long drives that consist of several turns and corners. You need to stay on alert and take breaks whenever necessary. In lots of instances, you will also face big trucks along the way (especially at night). If you are not comfortable with driving, we recommend you opt for a long day trip from Melbourne. There are several tour operators and bus companies offering such trips from the city. Most of the time the cost will also be inclusive of lunch.

 

What is the best time to visit the Great Ocean Road?

You should consider visiting the Great Ocean Road between the months of March and April during the late summer. That being said, July to September is also great if you want to maximise your chances of spotting on whales.
