When you are in Melbourne, or on the there is one thing that you absolutely must do, the Great Ocean Road. Although it’s a long road and a very touristic thing to do, the view of the 12 apostles is all worth your while. You don’t have to stop at every view point – mostly it’s still the same ocean with some rocks. But definitely stop at the 12 apostles. If the tide is good, don’t forget to walk down and stroll around the beach. On the way to the 12 apostles you can stop for some surfing (it’s a must, though water is freezing!) and not forget to watch out for the colourful parrots! – I call every bird in Oz a parrot, because they basically are. I did it in a two day trip, which was perfect.
